Palm House

Alric Galindez as Architects

Like a palimpsest, the landscape is rewritten on itself time and again. For many years, large country estates stretched out over the planes of the Pampas. As the city expanded, these were divided into smaller plots of land-in this case, a country estate with many old-growth trees has become a gated community. O this last plot within the new suburb only two palm trees and a monkey-puzzle tree remained. These trees could have been seen as an obstacle to the building project, but at the same time they presented a chance for a space/time superposition of elements of the original landscape within the new construction.
