Argentina, Córdoba | "Next Generation" 3rd prize, Latin America, 2014

Den-City
Den-City

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

Argentina, Matacos | Acknowledgement prize, Latin America, 2014

Harvesting Agriculture
Harvesting Agriculture

The province of Formosa in northern Argentina is one of the most bio-diverse regions of Latin America. While forests are abundant in resources, its people live immersed in scarcity, among other reasons, due to the advance of the agro-industrial frontier. Harvesting Agriculture aims to build a center for water harvesting and agricultural production based on a system for retaining water during periods of summer rainfall for later agricultural use during the dry season in the winter.

Organismo
Organismo

This proposal for an office facility is notable for its novel approach to employing sustainable construction technology. The work is unique in its use of unconventional materials for roofing as well as the use of sophisticated water retention slabs. Envisioned as part of a “living organism”, the adaptable roof is a commendable innovation in its own right, altering its geometry in order to effectively collect solar radiation in winter and provide shade in the summer.

Energy self-sufficient water desalination facility
Energy self-sufficient water desalination facility

The concept responds to the scenario of a breakdown of the global system based on the trajectory of current ecological, economic and social crises. It then questions the role of architecture in this kind of future. As its basis, the project depicts a positive turnaround with the beginning of a new cycle – beginning with action, evolution and innovation, reaching for a more sustainable architecture.

Argentina, Rosario | Acknowledgement prize, Latin America, 2011

Library with integrated community outreach
Library with integrated community outreach

This project was initiated by the municipal government of Rosario in response to the nation’s poor results in a 2009 worldwide evaluation of 15-year-olds in mathematics, science and reading. The strategy provides both the infrastructure of the library and a vast network of supplementary activities to generate flow-on use of the facility in Argentina’s third largest city.
