2016 : an idealist journalist, Harris Whitbeck, invites two Dutch artists, Jeroen Koolhaas and Dre Urhahn (Haas and Hahn), and the Pintando Santa Catarina Palopó project begins…

The Guatemalan designer Diego Olivero collaborates with architects, designers, community leaders and residents to complete the planning process…
