Description Change this

Renovation is the keyword that becomes essential for architects work. Future of our cities must take into account the correct use of available resources, stopping the uncontrolled expansion of urban areas and recovery those portions of tissue that are often ignored, but that are full of history. Arabesque is a research project developed on one of the last examples of old buildings placed in Nizza, the main street of the new part of Cuneo. Arabesque is a compromise; it builds new apartments, but does not forget the history, avoiding the demolition of the old building.
