Description

A selection of architecture, landscape and urbanism works from aldayjover architecture and landscape, an office based in Barcelona, Spain and Virginia in the United States.

A collection of projects -- designed from their local and territorial DNA -- that respond in new ways to the global socio-ecological crisis in which we have been in engaged with since the beginning of the 21st century. Featured works include public spaces, architecture and urban studies that incorporate natural dynamics and that also emphasize -- recovering in some cases -- legal access among all citizens and equal access to the city and its opportunities. The works presented are particularly renowned given their leadership role in a new approach to the relationship between cities and rivers, in which natural dynamics become part of the public space, eliminating the effect of "catastrophe".
