Esperanza Dos / Al Borde. Architects: Al Borde – David Barragán, Pascual Gangotena& Esteban Benavides Location: Manabí, Ecuador Collaborator: Grace Pozo Constructor: AL Borde & Volunteers & Community Completion: 2011 Area: 140 sqm aprox. Budget: US$ 700, all the community material and all the work of the volunteers and community Photographs: Sebastián Melo, Andrea Vargas Here in Cabuyal people live without electricity, without sewage or running water. People do not use money; they have no jobs or professions. People do not measure time with clocks; do not use meters or rulers.

Here there is no private property, nor institutions. Over here life is simple: if they are tired, they sleep, if they are bored, they play. They have ignored boundaries, morals and shoes. They do not need gods, laws, or degrees. It’s not about making money to buy things in order to satisfy hunger. And a specific area with fuzzy boundaries. Each person had a preferred task in the construction and involuntarily became good at it. Cotacachi House / Arquitectura X. Architects: Arquitectura X Location: Cotacachi, Ecuador Design Team: Adrian Moreno, Maria Samaniego Area: 378 sqm Year: 2009 Photographs: Sebastián Crespo A couple from the Caribbean seek retreat amid the northern Andes in a small town, two hours north of Quito, an orchard site in a valley 2470 meters above sea level, between the Imbabura and Cotacachi mountains, to the east and west respectively.

The couple needs a design proposal in 4 days before going home, or they will sell the site: we have to design a house without knowing the site and after meeting the couple for two hours. Based on our experience for our own house, we apply the same strategy: a universal scheme that can work for any site condition, a house whose spatial limits will be the two mountains we know dominate the valley, the abstract glass house as a starting point.

Hospital in Puyo / Pm, Mt. Architects: Pm, Mt Location: Puyo, Ecuador Architects In Charge: Patricio Martínez, Maximiá Torruella Client: Makiber, SA Area: 15,710 sqm Year: 2012 Photographs: Sebastían Crespo Quantity Surveyor: ARDÈVOL / VALERI Consultores Structural Consultat: BIS Arquitectes Services Consultant: JG Ingenieros Construction Company: Makiber, SA From the architect. The Hospital de Puyo emerged as a major architectural challenge in response to a national emergency which called for the design, construction and outfitting of a latest-generation hospital facility in record time (less than one year), but without giving up on building a leading hospital. Here we are dealing with a modular project featuring a high degree of prefabrication, dry construction and a marked commitment to local industry and society. * Location to be used only as a reference.
