Territorial Figure in Argentina: Evolutionary Process of Infrastructures in New Territories – The Patagonia Case
Exactly two years ago, we decided that our thesis project needed to address a severe electrical emergency Argentina was going through and, at the same time, to push against climate change to contribute to the health of our planet. To achieve so, we decided to make a step forward in rethinking both the discipline of landscape architecture and infrastructures in new territories, by the formulation of a methodology that would allow us to coherently intervene the landscape.
Today, we are astonished by the great success of the project due to different recognitions worldwide. Our project has not only been awarded by LafargeHolcim Awards, but also by 6 more national and international organizations. At the same time, there was an increasing interest from different institutions including the Government of Argentina, and meetings were held with the national Minister of Energy, Juan Jose Aranguren and the Undersecretary of Renewable Energy, Sebastian Kind. We are in the precise moment, in which the political and institutional scenario of Argentina allows us to, pushing forward this research to start dreaming.
