About us

We are an urban planning bureau specialized in the design and development of sustainable strategies.  Our team brings together designers and strategists of space: urban planners, architects, landscapers and professionals in Geology, Archeology, Hydrology and Urban mobility. Nahuel Beccan Davila (1963) is the expert architect and urban planner that coordinates the work team. 

About us
Perfil

Perfil

Our greatest commitment is to create alternatives and solutions to face climate change. The culture of the place, water and space use efficiency are at the core of our transformation strategies. We believe that the proposals should be integrative, highly creative, financially feasible, and grounded in culture and social participation.  It is our belief too that the key to sustainable solutions is the collaborative work embracing design, research, techniques, stakeholders participation, and new technology applications.

Work Methodology

We begin the process with participatory design workshops and make our work team according to the task and to the space. We simplify the complexity of the task in order to perform immediate interventions without obstructing the vision of future. Government, private organizations, and citizens have a significant role in the whole process. We continue to adjust the task through participatory workshops and we altogether define the most efficient solutions. If it is necessary, we add academic participation to the process to exchange knowledge and train future professionals.
