conservation and urban diversity

Cityscapes are the result of the architectural and urbanistic developments of previous times. With their virtues and flaws, they’re a permanent part of each city’s history. Destruction and construction lead to an ever-existent urban diversity. And each time this fact has been ignored, the city and its inhabitants have suffered the consequences.


We employ mock-ups to assess, in real scale, the performance of specific architectural features and carry out design reviews.
