My article in the Revista Internacional de Educación para la Justicia Social (RIEJS)
It's written in Portuguese, but here you can read the english abstract:

"The article explores the connection between play and architectural design studio teaching. Approaching ludic a special interest is given to its practices and objects, the toys, considered capable to curry meanings and disciplinary values. Besides that, toys manipulation is, oftentimes, an action very close with the didactic of the design studio teaching. In a second moment the approach is directed to the design studio teaching and to its main traits, among which the exercise of freedom. The subject projects for an indeterminate future, this mean, in a free condition. In a third moment, the two theoretical paths cross each other and the connections between intellectual and material ludic behavior and design studio are stressed."
