The Extensión Universitria is defined as the way in which the state university is becoming an active party in a determined context and is working in close contact with civil society, making its knowledge, capacities and skills available to cooperate in improving the quality of life in the community to which it belongs. Although different ways exist of interpreting this function of the university, initiatives exist which are developing its most interesting and creative characteristics. These include the Taller Libre de Proyecto Social (Tlps) initiative of the Fadu (Facultad de Arquitectura, Diseño y Urbanismo) of the Universidad de Buenos Aires. The Tlps is a workshop in which students lecturers and professionals come together to develop projects and activities in a fieldwork context with the objective of capitalising on its interdisciplinary nature, employing reciprocal practice and learning as a chance to provide an answer to numerous social questions and the need to organise to solve them.
