CADUTA E RICONSTRUZIONE DELLA POLIS - Nicola Di Battista

Los arquitectos tienen la responsabilidad como ciudadanos de buscar la más acertda conciencia posible de la idea de ciudad que nos gustaría tener y habitar. Como ciudadanos, nos gustaría entender claramente lo que falta en la formaen la que hacemos las ciudades que vivimos todos los días, lo que les falta y lo que es indispensable para que vivamos nuestras vidas plenamente.

Ya no podemos contentarnos con solo decir lo que está mal; es nuestro deber decir lo que hay que hacer y cómo hacerlo.

Architects have the responsibility as citizens seeking the sharpest possible awareness of the idea of the city that we would like to have and to inhabit. As citizens , we would like to understand clearly what is missing form the real cities that we live in daily, what they lack and what is indispensable to us to live our lives fully.

We can no longer be content to say what is wrong; it is our duty to say what needs to be done and how to do it, or better, how we would set about doing it.

In Mexico’s northern border, inside the National Park “Maderas del Carmen”, there’s a natural reserve that fuses the passion of fauna conservation and the pleasure of enjoying nature through architecture.

The ecological reserve “Pilares” is located in the northern region of the state of Coahuila, in a 40,000 hectares (99,000 acre) land that is fully dedicated to the conservation of endangered species and the reproduction of others that had already disappeared from mexican territory, like the Bighorn sheep. Furthermore, this is an oasis in the contemporary world: a place isolated from urban development and linked to it’s Texan counterpart (The National Park Big Bend) by the greatness of it’s mountains and the pureness of the ecosystem.

In this context emerges “The Cave”, an architectural project that materializes the idea of creating a neutral space, one for socialization and contemplation, with a strong relation to the wild of a zone where the deer, the black bear, the bighorn sheep, the antelope and the american indian transit freely like if time follows it’s own rules there.
