MEMORY A typological reinterpretation that goes from introverted to extroverted, from heavy to light, a recycling operation of a typical “casa patio” of the early twentieth century in the neighborhood “Cordón” of Montevideo. Four housing units were developed in duplex and triplex trying to respect the original spatial potential of these new houses .Here the “new” just touches the existing. The new construction is conceived as possible future transformation of their genesis in the original key.
