Description/Abstract

This thesis is interested in the active interventions that affect isolated towns through new economic developments. And I'm focused in the use of architecture as a leverage to transform the city in a way that empowers their local community, by adapting the architecture to handle the economic, infrastructure and density change, by working with existing building interventions. So it maintain its character but it also becomes its tool for social and economic cohesion that empowers the community.
