Tower Typologies

Best Project of Residential Estate

About the project
Tower typologies investigates the current high rise residential trends and question alternative ways that may serve the community better through COVID-19 lockdowns as well as normal days.
The idea is to create a vertical street that enhance aspects of low-rise Argentinian homes such as the shared balconies and backyards in a high-rise building. The bridge acts as a vertical channel that draws people up. Therefore, by extracting the essence of the site, the tower not only connects people to the surroundings, but also connects people upwards throughout the tower.
