COAM PFC Awards 2013: Castizo Urban Politics

Álvaro Carrillo Eguilaz 


During a first phase and based on civic participation and the interaction with users, the project seeks to make urban processes transparent and to relocate decision-making to their natural environments.

The project proposes a renovation based on negotiations and exchanges, where domestic spaces are delocated. The idea is to organize the time during which the existing spaces are used and to revalue spaces that go unnoticed.

Readable, transparent and easy to manipulate by the user, the project understands the systems as a metabolism, becoming shaded areas within an urban square, or indicators of climatic comfort conditions and of energy saved.
