Ecosistema Urbano chosen to revitalize Centro Histórico de AsunciónAug 18, 2014
Ecosistema Urbano, the firm of Belinda Tato and Jose Luis Vallejo (design critics in architecture), has been awarded 1st prize in the international competition for the Master Plan to redefine the historic downtown of the city of Asunción, Paraguay.
The proposal developed by Ecosistema Urbano creates a new management model that combines top- down strategies with bottom-up initiatives. Rather than a Master Plan, a "Master Process" brings this planning process closer to the ever-mutating reality of the city and its inhabitants.
