Living so fast, without taking a space to connect with our essence and reflection for planning architectural services we offer such as restoration, family housing, vivienda multi-family, reshuffle , town planning , residences, corporate offices, institutional buildings bouquet and culture among others, that make our cities, since we are reflecting them…
New in architecture.
I start from this premise, everything is rush, no times or moments to feel like ourselves, and it is logical that do not perceive fewer spaces, the beautiful Mother Nature, cities, suburbs, neighborhoods and other sites where we live.
We have been carried away by fashions and stereotypes adopted in our cities, forgetting our identity. This causes cities poorly designed, extension of urban sprawl in areas unsuitable for development, excessive car use, congestion on existing roads, all causing health problems, excessive costs of infrastructure maintenance, increased family expenses, environmental degradation, stress, social discontent, and low productivity , coming not given talents to forge our Creator in the new in architecture.
I believe, as an architect in stage rethinking on how to improve the professional activity and provide more creative contributions to improve cities, It's time to create alliances and perform architectural projects in the field of Urbanism, uniting with other disciplines to strengthen and create comprehensive projects, ecological, considering bioclimatic architecture, the landscape, all these invaluable tools. With the knowledge and help of other specialists our final product will be a great addition as piece of a large puzzle that will bring renewed spaces, productive, and motivators for US Citizens.
This assumption is strengthened when you have the opportunity to travel to cities that have made a very good planning implementing interdisciplinary teams to achieve. It's time to join and contribute our talents, it asked me to visit cities that nourish and caress you with a look of love that give their spaces. How were planned ? How work planners ? Does the government support these projects ? To those interested in having a better city ?
I agree, with Dr. Navas Gerardo Davila on the importance for cities designing an Urban Master Plan, but I wonder how to heal bacteria, virus and others that threaten, since most of them lack this premise and have grown sprees. How to set design stages? What timeframes possible? The solution lies in the origin of urban neighborhoods? There are many questions and I think the important thing is to know the problem, feel it and know what to propose to support this growth , reflecting with other disciplines.
Recognizing problems and deficiencies move, as we will be more aware that we are part of this world and as we continue preparing both professionally and holistically am confident that we can provide appropriate solutions to sprawl of cities.
In this great digital era in which there is too much information worldwide has also had an influence, both favorable and unfavorable, these overgrowths of cities, since the boom Information has caused styles from other cities are taken believing that if they worked them, so will for us. But we forget to defend one's identity, the place where we belong, causing their loss and non-recognition of the natural values, ethnic, intangibles, tangible and cultural existing.
When trying to modernize the rural sector with the justification that is withdrawn and is not at the forefront, with designs, spaces and facilities construction homes, markets, farms, hospitals and schools that do not respect or take into account the modus vivendi, who do not study the region, weather, ecosystem and local materials, thinking that the decisions of those with greater purchasing power are the most successful and not that of the elements of the site, It is because of social and economic problems in the region, which causes an increased flow of floating population to the immediate cities, demerit of sustainability in the region.
Remember that a sustainable region is one that integrates human values and natural, striking a balance, both being economically active factor in this.
It is considered as give importance to the car without paying the same attention pedestrian, cyclist biker, this being evident when we try to beat the passage, without promoting an alternative mobility. We know that this type of mobility contributes to lower CO2 and fosters the planning areas with higher public spaces, and green areas, turning them into recreational areas within the city daily commute, inviting him to distraction and reflection.
Return to the restoration of urban subcenters is a possible feasible proposal for these sites, that would be strengthened by the reactivation of economic activity, accessible, secure and integrated communities and turn to cities. Preserving the environment and using natural resources properly, we are preserving the historical and cultural heritage of each region, Bet for most human cities ! New in Architecture.
