Project Summary


Urban regeneration through densification

The low density and lack of public space are two major detrimental factors in the Güemes neighbourhood of Córdoba, Argentina.

To improve conditions, adaptable and multipliable buildings for flexible use are proposed, including a range of provisions to reduce the environmental impact of the project: green roofs, rainwater collection, grey water for irrigation, solar energy production, and the use of recycled materials for construction.
