TaMaCo (Materials and Construction Workshop) is a digital manufacturing laboratory and a project of CheLa (Latin American Experimental Hypermedia Center), an old factory in the neighborhood of Parque Patricios that has an area of ​​5000 m2 and was converted into a cultural center. TaMaCo currently has space of 210 m2, which allows to work in large-scale projects, and space exploration. It also coexists with the use of diverse types of machine that are located in the space.


TaMaCo is a space open to the community, dedicated to artistic and technological research. It is equipped with design tools and manufacturing machines. TaMaCo promotes learning based on doing: The practice as the main vehicle of search, the study of manufacturing techniques, contact with tools and materials as the basis of creative processes.

Group work, community, respect, reciprocal support and the quality of personal relationships among TaMaCo members are as important as the products and processes carried out in TaMaCo.

TaMaCo aims to: Provide designers, architects, workspace, specialized tutorials and technologically advanced tools to investigate experimental, creative and innovative productive techniques. Promote the practice in design and manufacturing processes through immersive and collaborative experiences that generate new knowledge and possible approaches to contemporary issues in our society.
