Re-living the XXI century | Arq. Amaury Pérez - Experimental teaching of architecture.

I want to show you a project of one graduated architect of my school of architecture. This project was a finalist in a national contest called 'Arquine'. Since I'm so interested in urban planning this is a good example of how architecture can blend with urbanism to provide better conditions and raise the quality of life of people.

Competition Arquine No.15 | Re-living the XXI century:

Social housing from the modern paradigm raised the generation of new housing typologies for the XXI century after reviewing the housing models of modernity, based on different criteria of density, sustainability, flexibility and cohesion with the city. Ideas to offer solutions to urban sprawl in the future it becomes insistent. Thus, the competition suggested a scenario for "live again and renew: reuse in the simplest way, uninhibited and true, with the assurance that the spaces we inhabit, rather than undergo reforms, should reform the way they are used, considering the dwelling as an activity that contains all uses of architecture ". Today, time is a luxury high value, much of the day is spent in traffic, so saving time is to raise the quality of life of families, the objective is to be with loved ones more and so strengthen family and civic ties.

The project is based on modules of 10m2 with different uses, from housing, leisure and work, where the user can purchase according to their needs and the number of modules in order to add structural support in the composition of housing. That is why the growth and composition of the building is heterogeneous and arises randomly creating housing, public space, services, commerce and the new 'AEROMÉTRO' terminal.
This project proposes the 'AERÓMETRO' as a solution to attract employment to the center of the city, because with this new transportation system connectivity is favored with the city and saving time transfers to strategic points within the urban area. The project responds to the main feature of modern society that it is: diversity, today the household composition has changed, from the person living alone until families that are comprised of several generations, to which is to generate structural support where this society will randomly generating space.
