As a consequence of the winning entry of the competition of the Revitalization of the Centre of Managua won by AS+ in association with EAST, the team proposes several prototypical alternatives of urbanization in a block chosen as a study for the development of the plan of the revitalization.
Based on a study of factors of influence, the project site, the local climate and material culture, the project proposes a number of typologies and urban spaces with the potential to form part of the new urban center of Managua. Different combinations of their elements are explored, to understand their potential in terms of density, type of use, orientations, coexistence of different economic levels and living conditions of the inhabitants that each proposal allows and enhances.
All proposals are based on the search for adequate coexistence of office and commercial spaces with more residential uses, to create an optimal urban atmosphere. At the same time, all typologies seek to emerge as innovative, affordable and reliable solutions, based on their thermodynamic behavior and the use of local and proven materials and techniques
