Open Call for Students and Young Designers
A + C Freelaners is a young multicultural studio of freelance architects that is committed to breaking down barriers through technology, using it as a tool to connect us from different parts of the world; and in this way work together designing, growing as professionals, and creating the best possible version with different cultures.
On this occasion, we want to welcome you to our "pequeña villa montañosa" design competition located on the ”Cerro Áspero”, Córdoba, Argentina.
The Cerro Áspero mine is located in the Pampeanas mountains in the provinces of Córdoba and San Luis, Argentina. It is an abandoned mine from which tungsten was extracted.
Today the facilities of the mining settlement serve as a mountain refuge for those nature lovers who want to go to explore and explore this wonderful place and its imposing history.
The objective will be to design a model as a small self-sufficient village with a strong sustainable footprint, to make the most of the resources offered by the site.
For the conception of the town, you must first understand whom the space is intended for and its purpose. What is sought is to reactivate the economy of that area by reusing the existing buildings and/or materials that the place offers, so that jobs are generated for the local and surrounding people. It must be oriented to tourism.
