Revaluation and regeneration of three Buenos Aires’ neighbourhood squares (analysis and intervention model)

Research teams
belonging to different academic units (Facultad de Agronomía and
Facultad de Arquitectura, Diseño y Urbanismo) have worked together in
order to: 1) do an up to date diagnose including landscape, social
and cultural features of three neighborhood sqares of Buenos Aires
city, which have been selected because of their outstanding landscape
and History background; 2) prepare a proposal of intervention
(restoration or new plan) and schedules and suggestions in order to
keep the plazas in good use conditions by self managed neighbour groups, including ideas for innovative uses.
The final aim is to
develop a research and action plan to be applied in different green
spaces, also out of Buenos Aires city, in order to detect
socio-economic problems (i.e. socio-cultural and landscape
degradation in urban areas) and solve them through actions developed
with scientific criteria.
