ARCò - Architecture and Cooperation
My expertise:
ARCò has been founded by a group of young engineers and architects that understand Architecture as the “resolution of contingent problems through an aesthetic interpretation – and so, sensitive – of reality”. Such an approach has led ARCò to find and to contribute with its own skills, the world of International Cooperation in order to face and to solve architectural problems in emergency situations. Following an initial design experience in Moçambique in 2007, promoted by Vento di Terra NGO, the group is enlarged and constituted us such in 2009, to work on the necessity of a new project in Palestine, the school of tires of Al Khan Al Ahmar, near Jerusalem, also promoted by Vento di Terra NGO. Sustainability is approached in a social sense by seeking different techniques suitable to the specific sites of action, enabling self-construction processes, in an economic sense through the choice of the building techniques, using recycled and/or recyclable materials, in the environmental sense through the use of renewable energy sources and passive bioclimatic architecture principles. A fundamental goal for every project is the transmission of knowledge and skills through a process of capacity building of techniques and principles which have always been present in the local historical context.
