PROJECT SUMMARY

San Rafael-Unido, Urban Integration Project

Achieving improvements in an impoverished context is a challenge. The project takes maximum advantage of the steep slope to create a variety of social spaces with the placement of housing units providing a counter-measure to the danger of landslides. The project has been partially implemented in 2006 and 2009.
