Old Railway Carriage Transformed Into Rolling Cultural Centre

Quito-based design firm AlBorde decided to convert an old railway carriage into a rolling cultural centre. What was the fitting name that they chose for the project? El Vagón del Saber – which means “The Wagon of Knowledge”. It became such a success that it was selected by Ecuador’s Ministry of Culture and Heritage to start rolling and stop along remote communities so that it could serve as a public space. It became a sort of “rolling agora”, so to speak.
