Silos Buenos Aires – Architecture Competition Despite being known as the “Paris of South America”, due to its grand boulevards and buildings with an evident French imprint, the city of Buenos Aires has a past strongly linked to the naval trade and the agricultural exports. In fact, by the end of the 19th century, the port of the capital became a strategic point for the economic activity of the whole nation. 

The old infrastructural facilities of Puerto Madero, witnesses of a time when Argentina was considered “The Granary of the World”, are now part of the contemporary city and are perfectly integrated into a new urban skyline. Only a few port structures of extraordinary heritage value have remained intact, and without a doubt the most fascinating still standing ones are the Silos de la Junta Nacional de Granos

Out of use for more than 90 years, today this majestic ruin has remained somehow suspended in time and trapped in an urban context that has not yet been able to rehabilitate it as it deserves…

Tactical Urbanism Now! – Architecture Competition – Over the last decade, cities all around the world have experimented with a wide range of urban transformations through colourful, flexible and light interventions. Nowadays, it has become more and more common to come across these type of projects in both, small towns and metropolises.  

Tactical Urbanism proposes an innovative design approach that aims to achieve long-term regeneration with short-term strategies. In certain cases, due to the positive impact that these interventions have generated in the urban realm, projects that were once thought of as temporary have now become permanent. 

Working at the scale of a street, a block or a building, tactical tools have the power to improve liveability citywide. Similar to the way acupuncture inserts needles into one part of the body to boost the well-being of the entire organism, these projects can actually lead to positive changes in an entire neighbourhood 

The so-called Smart City remains undoubtedly the one capable of placing the human element at the centre of every project, providing its inhabitants with high quality urban environments.
