South Delta: Estuary-Strata

South Delta (Over the Delta) is a project conceived not “in spite of” but “with” the lake-like environment of the Rio de la Plata Estuary.

Instead of altering the natural lands and squashing the natural landscape to establish so-called “marinas,” at odds with the local ecosystem, the project embodies the quivering, palpitating Nature in constant movement (water running, exuberant vegetation, biodiversity,) creating a unique inhabitable space.

Two layered strata frame and are framed by the luscious watery environment of the Estuary:

  1. Floating Stratum: Positioned flush with the tree canopy’s top, is where housing, working and recreational spaces are located
  2. Amphibious Stratum: Positioned between the land level and the water level, is where all the ancillary equipment and services are located, including commercial, sportive, touristic and miscellaneous spaces are located
