SEP 18 – NOV 11 2017

Arq. aída Traconis shared his work at an exhibition at Boston Architectural College, on projects where urban landscapes and cities which are shaped by politics discussed, human density, the lack of green areas and climate change.
Rising sea levels Boston is evident along the harbor and Back Bay, the densest districts occupied by the development in the city in recent 4 centuries. You are areas reflect both the cause and the challenge of impending floods.

Mexico City with an elevation of 7,382 pies, It was built on lakes and natural marshes through a native-colonial architectural layering layer which reveals its socio. Mexico City is now overwhelmed by the impact of a population of more than 21 millions of inhabitants. This is a world famous metropolis, It lacking water resources and infiltration systems in a context of continuing urbanization.
Territories vary: from low or high and mountainous profiles. superabundance, shortage, the speed and force of water increasingly shape our landscapes. Boston is flooding. Mexico City is sinking. The conditions are different like geographies. Even so, recognizable experience a culture and climate that we are now bound by the water.

This exhibition marks a new chapter of an international academic collaboration between the School of Landscape Architecture at the Boston Architectural College (LAC) and the Metropolitan Center for Sustainable Architecture (C +) in Mexico City. Seeks to demonstrate the value of an intercultural exchange of ideas and design approaches as a method of research on environmental issues and urbanization affecting global communities today.

Projects include local and international work around Rising Tides and Resiliency in Boston and Lynn, Massachusetts; Mangrove ecosystems in the coast of Yucatan; and Father Francisco Tembleque Aqueduct in Tulancingo, Hidalgo – Mexico; and Social and Ecological Urbanism along the river bed of Medellin in Colombia, among many others.

In the design of houses, Remodeling of Interior design projects, the architecture firm of Aida Traconis has also been present in major media who have granted their space to talk about the innovative concept of their developed projects.

Last January 2016 Arq interviewed. Aida Manón Traconis Alcocer magazine ALÓ Merida, I attached the interview……..

Residencia JC- ROA.

Description , philosophy, company vision Aida Traconis - Architects.. and that sustainable projects .

Let's get "integrated site design", Nowadays ….
The comprehensively approach to sustainable building , site design, and exert sustainable residential landscape architecture not only reduces energy use, if not simultaneously improves the efficiency of water use, Also applying bioclimatic designs we well ventilated spaces, optimal habitability, in harmony with the environment and exploiting our natural resources (air, water, sun, vegetation..) given for life itself.
The owners can promote infiltration stored and recycle water, bio-retention using water mirrors, local water recycling and use of drip irrigation systems may be used and all practices efficiently to conserve water . Owners can use these systems to recycle, maintain the landscape , car wash and cleaning bathrooms.
It is worth mentioning that incorporate sustainable residential design sources , ponds, water mirrors , lloron walls etc reduce temperatures and improve air quality . This found that the houses that include eco-technologies and sustainable design ,as it has been incorporated in practical life using capture and rainwater utilization, use of native vegetation in the region in the landscape, use of sunlight with use of domes, and adequate window opening , use of photovoltaic panel, solar heaters , green roofs (roof Gardens), of course adding a site design integrating first, It is achieved by reducing energy costs and massive cost of maintaining the property creating a productive environment likewise , residential healthy .
Site design integrating a frame is to increase the quality of the built environment and involves maximizing the existence of application of natural systems to minimize energy use external .
Use of the Roof- garden (green roofs ) practice sustainable landscape architecture, helps the owner reduce energy use, reduces cooling expenses and the use of appropriate native vegetation protects us from the sun , reducing heat and embellishes the spaces, also it contributes to reducing the carbon footprint.
The perfect combination to achieve "Integrated Design Site with residential use sustainable practices, It is incorporated into the design Bio-Climate, Photovoltaic systems Panel, use of green roofs (roof – garden ), Using biodigestor, landscape design with appropriate plant palette.
All this will make a great combination property with great value of sustainable design and will add value added to the property together will have great benefits for owners and their purchasing value will be more goodwill and maintenance costs will be lower .
It's time to bet on the site design integrating sustainable residential building with sustainable gardening practices.
