Bonpland 2169 Building

From the mixed-use to the diff-use. Finally, almost everybody agrees that our cities should be compact, dense and programmatically diverse. Although there are quantitative nuances regarding these points, most of our efforts aim to consolidate a model of a city different from the positivism outlined in the Athens Chart. Rural migrations to urban centers overflowed imagined densities, forcing us to abandon the idea that there is a single program linked to large areas of land. Assuming this condition has led us to imagine different ways to swell and diversify the thickness of our cities. The large-scale constructions called Mixed-Use are an example of this line of work where buildings with diverse programs converge in a single project. Today we have techniques capable of establishing certain continuity between the proposed city model and large-scale constructions. However, in the range of the average scale, this relationship has not been addressed in depth.
