This project deals with the production arrangements for assemblies of adobes factories, in the field of socio-environmental architecture facing the perspective of its insertion as a constructive material in the Brazilian civil construction sector - in the context of technological innovations that need to be properly investigated. From the set planning of investigation activities and field research, articulated to practical and constructive actions, this proposal will address issues related to technical guidelines for the mechanization of adobe production lines, covering the productive plan, labor forces, productive energies, technical tests, technical standards, capital involved, public policies, among others. Some contexts that will be studied indicates that it is possible to establish productive arrangements adequate to a systematic production of adobe, inserted in the sector of the civil construction. In a complementary way, the project proposes the realization of an experimental production line of adobes that will be set up within the course of extension schoolyard called Design Building, reinforcing the technological production's understanding as a productive and formative social process, and of the integration of work with the construction of knowledge. The schoolyard experiences have been revealing throughout their achievements that the productive processes of the technologies created at the construction site itself seek to be carried out collectively, solidarity, conscious and sustainable, and experience interacting pedagogical processes, with dialogic and participative practices, assuming production as a process of awareness and stimulator of new knowledge.
