Authors’ Comment

The diploma project proposes a social reintegration center of Plumbuita Monastery. The site is at the intersection of a low-rise homes neighborhood, the natural park and lake area and the area influenced by the Monastery, a historical monument. By its position at the site, the proposal opens to the landscape through the courts with different themes and marks the limit to the public. Courts are progressively discovered and can be perceived through transparency. Courts are delimited by the two built volumes - one dedicated to community-based activities for children and young people in the community, and the second includes temporary accommodation for young people leaving the institutionalized system and with no perspectives in the near future.
