The most important ideas from the village that we can use for create future architecture:

-relation "human-nature", "human-communication", "human-art"
-calmness, silence, observation, meditation
-saturation, diversity, lack of monotony
-human scale
-careful attitude
-attention to details
-Human - the owner of the street and the space

This drawing shows the process of what is happening with village (in this case is Blanca ), shows the relationship between the village and the surrounding nature, the village and the urban environment, the urban environment and details. I focus on the details, because they form an individual image of the village. Details are the link that connects the past and the future. I think it is important for us- not to lose this link.

Human - the owner of the street! When we walk along the pedestrian street, we relax, everything is fine, everything is under control and a street is our ... but then suddenly the car burst into our personal space. The car is a predator. The machine pushed the man out of the city (space). Cities (space) belong to cars. It is necessary to return the street (space) to a person!
