“Natura Futura from Babahoyo, Ecuador, is a practice that questions itself on sensitive issues of architecture and Latin American cities; an architectural exploration path that works in search of solutions through continuous experimentation and research. Intervening from a simple logic of incorporating a certain order in a continuous redefinition of the dimensions of the collective, of the actions that generate urbanity and of management as a production process towards the transfer of knowledge”
