Breathing New Life into an Underutilized Area

Rioparque, Puerto Madero, Buenos Aires, AR

Reimagining the waterfront site as a valuable addition to the city of Buenos Aires, as it transitions from the city to the rivers edge: a place for contemplation, community engagement and activation.

A premier riverfront park where both the richness of local
biodiversity is celebrated and the community is inspired
to cultivate a profound connection with the river.

Responding to different edge conditions of the site: the canal, the low lands, and the waterfront.

Client
Buenos Aires City in collaboration with Central Society of Architects (SCA), and sponsored by the Argentine Federation of Architects (FADEA)
