The temple of the inmaculate conception of the CaronĂ area in Venezuela was built by capuchin monks as a way to conquest and colonize the south of Venezuela. At present, this building is in ruins, totally abandoned and deteriorated, and the physical presence does not represent anything for the local council.
REVALUATION OF FORGOTTEN LANDSCAPES
Reinvention of a territory with the reuse and transformation of the ruins of the Caroni area. Bolivar State. Venezuela. Tutors: Alejandro Vega / BĂŠla Kunckel. Quarter: January-March 2013. Degree Project.
A proposal of intervention and patrimonial recovery is being made, which offers new opportunities for developments and reactivation of this forgotten place. A new use, programming and function will be given to these ruins, activating the historical memory. A dignifying proposal of use is being made which would respect the monument itself, but made in a contemporany manner.
After analyzing how it must have worked and how it is the space now, the place under study is considered to have as main value its “scale”; the magnitude in size and proportions where two hundred and fifty (250) people could be comfortably accommodated in 334 m2 area. The place is always focally oriented towards the altar, that is a space naturally for use of representation of special events. The ruins can be considered as a place for theatrical scenical vocation, where many different kinds of performing arts activities can be done, like for example:
The third catalan capuchin expedition, arrives at this Caroni area and gets definitely settled there.
During the goverment of Venezuela’s president Romulo Betancourt, the ruins were declared national historical monument.
they also take charge of the Caroni Missions.
The “Guayana Archaeological Project” was made aiming at the Archaeological rescue of the direct impact of what would soon be the Macagua dam area.
The electrical power Administration Company, EDELCA, requested a preliminar report to the architect Ralph Erming and Jose Antonio Pecchio on what would be the final use that should be given to the ruins of the temple.
The park was then closed
The church was rebuilt in brick and was directed by priest Felix de Tarraga, architect of the temple.
The friars were held prisoners of the royalist army and were also slaughtered, after that, the temple was left in total abandonment.
Due to weather conditions and not maintenance, the roof collapsed and produced destruction of some internal elements in the temple.
The works of consolidation and setting of the value of the temple were entrusted to architect Graziano Gasparini.
Ciudad Guayana, in the south of Venezuela, where the ruins lie, was founded as a powerful industrial city, holds so much green area that should be protected and be inter connected. The proposal consist of restoring the green areas system around the Caroni River. All this project demands organizing the slum on the sides of the river, together with the building of new docks which might allow the inhabitants to create public inland lake waterways. It is also sought the creation of a public transportation system going through the parks network, supplemented with the present transportation network. It is also in mind the rescue of the areas and waste ground around the caroni river, to regenerate the fauna and flora system, which have been impacted with the building of Macagua Hydroelectric Power Plant.
The place where â€œthe ruins of Caroniâ€? is located belongs to the network of national parks, we propose the re-foundation of the park that existed on this site. The original park that existed here disappeared because of several reasons, one of them being the lack of specific use together with the difficulty to get there. On the project proposal we consider the possibility of building news docks in order to make the crossing time shorter and, at the same time, exploit the beauty of the existing landscape.
The territory where the mission of the Caroni temple lie has an area of hundred and forty Ha (140 Ha) with the following features: 1. Great historical value 2. The macagua dam lake allows easy access 3. The area allows for the creation of walking trails 4. The hills and adjacent lagoons have great scenic views 5. The adjacent forest have great potential as a wildlife
The “ruin level”, is the area where the visitor comes to know the place itself and discovers it. On the latter ground you get to know the monument, or attend any activity being performed within the ruins. From this level you can see the landscapes; the building operates as an extension of the podium that already exist.
The “Conference Level”, is the area for executives and entrepreneurs; this is connected to the main auditorium of the building. The administrative offices are located on this level of the area. There are spaces for conference rooms with simple height and there is an area from which you can watch the entrance hall from high. In addition to this, there are relief spaces for offices and conferences located over the library and exhibition spaces. The fissure separates all internal areas of the building from the area of the ruins.
The “exhibition level”, is the acces level, is the most public area of the building; this level contains a stands area or entertaiment area; where you can see projections of videos or movies. Contains the threshold to get into the main auditorium. The most important acces to the ruins is through the crack or ramp, this element works as a transition between the ruin and the park. Througt this element the visitor does not feel that he is inside the building. This level also contains a shopping area, snacks and also a connection from the ruins level towards the auditorium.
The “Park level”, as its name indicates, is the level that has direct contact with the vegetation of the place. On this floor you will find classrooms for teaching performing arts. Some of them are double-height and others triple-height; it also contains a library area. The closure of the classrooms is a glass box and it is made of panels which let these spaces to be adaptable to the size that is needed to use. this floor is adapted to the terrain of the place.

Access to safe drinking water is one of the benefits we have as citizens of a country with vast reserves of fresh water and bordering to the North with the Caribbean Sea. The position of Caracas is privileged in this geography, raised to 900 meters above sea level, just moves away from it by 6, 5km and separates them el Avila, the mountain which is part of the coastal mountain range. Considering the geographical conditions, what are the options of water supply? One can take it from the sea, desalinate it, take it up to the Avila Mount 2.5 km and then lower it to the city. Another option would be take it from the closest volume of fresh water which is 150 km South, (the present supply system). The third option could be take it from the rain waters that feed the system of streams which descend from the mountain, just before arriving to the Valley. A single stream that descends from the Avila Mount collects water from 800 Ha of surface.
The present operating system of Water supply is comprised of rudimentary, obsolete and improvised devices which come from inadequate ground reservoirs located on the foothills of the Avila Mount; they are high and visible on the skyline of the city. Water Supply lines that go against the height line of the buildings in the Valley at 945 meters above sea level, on a plane that extends to the South of mountains and in their journey, they supply water to residential compounds with water trucks, around buildings and tanks located in strategic points for reserve. An infrastructure of waters of Metropolitan scale which does not change the situation of pollution of the natural tributaries, but eliminates 60 of the dependence of the existing system, and makes people aware of its omnipresence.
The pillars, which are located in densely populated areas of town, supply water and offer new publics spaces in the tower and around it. In exchange for the environment of water given to the surrounding building, their roofs are received, then the tower extends the surface of their floors of public use to these new terraces, which integrate water and vegetation for the enjoyment of the city.
The pillars are not defined as residential buildings as such, but they use public infrastructure of metropolitan scale containing housing and complementary services that respond to the dynamics and structures of Caracas City. The addition of services to them and the rent charged for commercial space, provide an additional income which is used for the maintenance of the tower and decreases considerably the economic load rent for tenants that in any case is much less than the present payment which is equivalent to 180 monthly for the cheapest rent in Caracas city.
The cost of spaces for rent are proportional to the amount of square meter (m2) for each person, adding the 12,25 square meter (m2) of a residential cell, but the square meter m2 of common use is divided by the number of people who share the spaces. This number varies according to the specific tenant profile: students, just married and families, and the total rent for each represents the 30% of monthly revenue per case. This modality allows the possibility of renting to people who currently have no income as tenants apartments of 50 m2 and much less to be proprietors
The Water beam, structure that comprises the aqueduct, carries all the Anauco stream water, emerges from a dam located at the level of the Boyacรก avenue, from a point that integrates the Avila Mount in the proposal. The prelude to 4.3 km of sequential spaces audiences and platforms connected by walkways. The intersection nodes of the pillars with beam are the vital organs of the Water Machine, which pick up, on these points, the rain water, water from the aqueduct, generates real rain after rain and produce fog at night. The structures as cymbals are the last level of living space of the system, look outs of the city and fans in the process.
The Guajira, located in the northwest of Venezuela, with an area of 20.848 km2 and 246.609 inhabitants, is the space of residence of two cultures, Western and indigenous Wayuu, is a bi-national territory comprising part of the republic of Colombia and the republic Bolivarian of Venezuela. We recognize the guajira as a territory; the territories are the result of how societies organize themselve to use natural system in which reproduction is supported. we start from the study of conditions of their natural territory, climate, areas of life, biodiversity and enviromental supply, overlapping economic activities and social life of the guajiro. Moments of conflict are called the spaces in which man and nature do not coexist in equilibrium: nearly 260.000 has of degraded area, waste of agricultural territory, degradation of soils by mining activities, industrial and livestock. Mining is the activity that most income produced in this territory and at the same time is the one that harms. The landscape is the setting in which and through which memory, identity and social order are constructed, staged and transformed. understanding that the human race, as opposed to natural system, is dynamic body that transform and adapts to change; we propose a landscape in which the activities of man lies on natural resources and in which the system composed of the men as an organism, the indigenous heritage, identity and the social order transform, reinvent and build the New Guajira 2050.

REDRAWING THE LANDSCAPE OF LA GUAJIRA Tutors: Carlos Olaizola Quarter: September-December 2011 International Contest
In the Colombian Guajira, Uribia, is the municipality of greatest importance within the configuration of the territory, the natural resources offer great variety of landscapes, mostly non used. Surface waters occupy only 0,4 of the territory, forcing the extraction of groundwater. Uribia has a population of 144.490 inhabitants which need 419,51 m3sec of water flow, only in its header is now required a flow of 15,51 m3sec. The water is extracted directly from wells and jagueyes, contaminated in more than 80. Polluted waters, large movements in search of resources and the lack of distribution of the population, according to the existing water point, represent the conflict to be addressed in the new plan of water distribution. The head of this municipality lies within the agricultural territory of la Guajira and is a connection point of the North- South Park of la Guajira. This is located between two rivers that overflow in rainy season and equaly in the rest of the municipality, worsening the existing precarious service. We propose to redraw the landscape of Uribia; based on the recovery and conservation of vegetation, an urban landscape that according to the network of municipal services and a landscape agriculture that will increase more urban territory and promote the exploitation of the natural resources of it.
