Now that we know that our future has become liquid, nodo17 is in permanent change and evolution.
Nowadays we live in a permanent unsettled environment. The flexibility and indeterminacy of the future has become part of our way of living. The solid modernity is being replaced by the liquid modernity. Within this context and in reference to the traditional planning that orders the future, which should be today the tools to design a city?
Opposite to the academic tools based on the lining up of the streets, the height of the cornices, the relation between the typologies and the urban morphology, we propose a city not based solely on formal or morphological parameters, but on temporal parameters: a city that anticipates the future.
Our proposal for the area of Fort Garry Campus evolves with time. It is not solid but liquid. Time has always been the construction material of the remarkable cities. In fact, the bases of this competition show a great concern with the future and with a system that allows a flexible construction program based on phases.
The amazing setting of Fort Garry Camus is a great opportunity itself to develop this approach. A flexible city means an adaptable city, but not only with the city users but mostly with the built environment and the landscape. An environmentally friendly city that coexists and lives closed to nature; a city that searches the most efficient direction to reduce energy consumption and optimize the pedestrian’s zones, encouraging public transportation against the use of private vehicles.

The potential success of our proposal lies in the project management. And to achieve that we have to develop the necessary tools to produce the project we have proposed.
In fact, we think that the project management is most important than the final result.
Therefore, we set out some rules that integrate de technique conditions and the typological flexibility that haves to follow the construction in the Eco-neighborhood of Toledo.
The goal is to achieve formal coherence in the building as well as an infinite typological diversity.
The formal coherence is obtained by the structural volumes and the potential cross section.
The typological diversity is achieved through the ability of the structural volumes, leading to dwelling with variable uses and infinite typologies. For this, we would like the urban environment to suit to inhabitants lifestyle through participation in typological election.
The result pretends to be a diverse and coherent community, where social integration it´s promoted.Architecture2012
