Pro-crear Neighborhood in La Banda, Santiago del Estero, Argentina, 2013
This was a team project, in which we collaborated with the prestigious Becker-Ferrari Architectural Studio, from Buenos Aires. The challenge was to develop a large popular neighborhood in La Banda, Santiago del Estero. The requirements were that the landscaping be beautiful and that the project became a strong factor in social integration, inviting people to use the public spaces and incorporating green areas into the built sections. Another condition was that the green spaces be sustainable, since maintenance afterwards would be scarce to null. Both native and locally adapted non-native plants were chosen. The result was a very interesting project, carried out by a wonderful team of people, through an enjoyable working dynamic.
