Public facility towers: Transferable and adaptable structures providing public amenities in underserviced and most often marginalized neighborhoods of Latin American cities.
Argentina, Córdoba | "Next Generation" 3rd prize, Latin America, 2014
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.
Argentina, Matacos | Acknowledgement prize, Latin America, 2014
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.

This conceptual project illustrates the benefits of a public policy to promote roof gardens (green roofs) on existing buildings in the city of Buenos Aires on a large scale. A prototype green roof on a school was successfully installed in 2012 and demonstrates the potential of the project vision.
Argentina, Mendoza | Encouragement prize, Latin America, 2005
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.

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
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.
