The preexistence - The necessary - The aesthetic

New Past-Present for an Uncertain Future


The preexistence - The necessary - The aesthetic
A symbiosis between landscape, cities and heritage. Fuzzy boundaries is necessary

In the time of economic crisis we are living, cities has developed without worrying about the landscape or heritage. In many cases population has emigrated making greater inequalities. The joining of the city and the countryside is necessary for their survival and growth. The joining between cities and heritage is necessary for the creation of urban centers in contact with their past and without ghettos. In small towns where heritage is in contact with landscape, the link between them is essential. That´s the reason why an ARCHITECTURE OF FUZZY BOUNDARIES IS NECESSARY.
The connection between different urban areas should be rethink, eliminating edges and barriers and making hybrid urban fabric. Furthermore, these actions should realize a social function trying to revitalize abandoned areas and contributing to their occupation. This ethical work of linking the necessary and the preexistence, must be developed from an aesthetic point of view.


A bridge to new reality. Connection modules in primary school

Nexus to landscape. Gateway to residential area

Remembering Gordon Matta-Clark. Looking for the place between new and old architecture

A bridge joining past architecture to present. Extension and connection with nursing
