Perspective

SITE AS MATERIAL

We are going to design a city whose conception will be served by the real conditions of comfort, cooling the hot Cordoba climate, the importance of the fi nal landscape over fi nancial speculation, the creation of a landscape architecture based on the intelligence of adaptation, and the use of the wind as architectural material. . . The new city will be the result of the adaptation of concepts to reality, of functionality to function, and of particularised, fragmentary procedures.

GENERATE

The vectorial sum of wind directions and velocities over time generated a latticework of corridors for the passage of cooling air

Adaptation/Mutation

The grid is a genotype, it provides the guidelines within which adaptation can occur. The phenotype is the response of the grid genome to external conitions- topography, vegetation and hydrology.

Interconnect/Join

Discrete networks are allowed to coexist commensally. They join and share the same surface, yet they are disctint, the y interact, and benefit from each other, but each remains unaffected by the other.
