Recooperation is a multi-scale, holistic proposal for the Orba Neighbourhood, in the South of the Metropolitan Area of Valencia, Spain.
The restoration of the continuity of natural ecosystems, converting the neighbourhood into a landscape-connector node, constitutes the framework for the upgrading changes to be introduced in the built environment.
You can see the plates and the presentation at http://masshousingcompetition.org/results/entry/578
The project led us to work in collaboration with some neighbourhood associations and other local agents to boost a participatory process. You can find more about it in this posts: Propuesta de revitalización urbana del barrio Orba, Reunión en Alfafar
In addition, Recooperation is the base for a further research on housing and urban regeneration. The Barrio Arbol project is one of its results.
