La Boca's waterfront: environmental restorarion
Buenos Aires - invited
In the city of Buenos Aires, La Boca has always had a historical and cultural relevance, overshadowed by the criticalities about security, housing crisis, lack of essential services and the poor quality of life linked to the critical environmental conditions of the Rio Matanza-Riachuelo. Drafting a masterplan project has led to the identification of strategical macroareas for the waterfront’s regeneration, connected between them by a network of green-blue infrastructures. The water is the main element: using nature-based solutions for the environmental restoration, it is assumed a new water cycle management, based on phytodepuration and integrated with the new design of public spaces, with the aim to improve the quality of life in the neighbourhood, respecting its hystorical and naturalistic identity.
