EL MALECON REANIMACIÓN | Havana | Unit 21 | 2011 Click to see Thesis
Cuba is in a transitional phase. Assuming that it is transforming into a free market economy, it is inevitable that there will be increased foreign investment and construction. With little development over the last 50 years much of the urban fabric is in a dilapidated state.
Proposed is a Regeneration project for the Malecon, the sea front boulevard of Central Havana. On 9 sites left void from collapsed or demolished buildings community based projects celebrate Cuban culture, and create a transitional architecture that prevents the Malecon becoming a characterless strip of hotels. They aim to reanimate the ‘Cities Living Room’ and provide new facilities to stimulate community regeneration.
