Text by Helena Casanova: Four circular housing blocks with sloping roofs colonize the space in the central axis of the study area. In part of the perimeter of the area, some existing blocks are preserved and restored. The existing blocks will be striped down to their concrete structure and covered entirely with glass facades. The footprint of the demolished buildings is translated into ponds. The space between blocks is transformed into a big urban farming area. The designers propose a strategy to Com.wonen for a future development of the area into a farmer-producer one. Each housing typology has a balcony or a garden.
