Extra-local is a workshop exploring the act of making, materials, construction and politics in the context of rural Spain and the post-recession global economy.

The workshop focuses on the potentials of an experimental building material derived from its local context. By combining existing disparate industries, an extra-local material can instigate the re-imagining of the future of development and local economies of construction.

The workshop is a dialogue between local and traditional building techniques, contemporary architecture, and experts in digital restoration—to intervene, experiment and speculate on the potentials of a local material process, within the climate of mass production, late capitalism and the anthropogenic environment.
