PLACE´TA | Juan Moya arquitectura

Intervention is a reactive architecture faced to the hostility of urban conditions in the site and to the scheduled mechanicism proper of a lifestyle inherited from the 20th Century modernity. An impersonal crossway with high traffic volume is balanced through a biophilic interior for collective meeting. Being today demands the pass towards metamodernity. The presence of a human being that […]

Projecting with nature | Guido Cimadomo
