AHI Architectural Heritage Intervention

“Contributing to enhancing our heritage, as the way forward for 21 st Century architecture is our raison d’être; to emphasize a diverse, rich vision that necessarily complements the intervention is our mission, and achieving it with reflexive and purposeful efforts is the challenge”.

This project, founded in, and directed since, 2011 by Ramon Calonge, Oriol Cusidó, Marc Manzano and Jordi Portal, architects and members of the Group of Architects for the Defence and Intervention in Architectural Heritage (AADIPA), has, through the years become a platform that includes four actions that are both independent and transversal.
The European Award, a biennial event that brings together and showcases the multiple approaches of intervention in Europe.

The International Biennial, a framework that serves to compare and gain closer insight of quality interventions in architectural heritage in non-European countries.

The digital Archive, a live and open window that provides a panoramic view of interventions in the history of our surroundings.

The Forum, a meeting place where you can participate in on-going debates about the main preoccupations and lines of thought about interventions in architectural heritage in Europe.


Integrated Rehabilitation of the Las Flores neighborhood

Integrated Rehabilitation of the Las Flores neighborhood

Las Flores is a neighborhood in A Coruña designed in the 1960s by renowned architects from the era of Franco. Neighborhood unit 3, designed by JA Corrales, received the National Architecture Award in 2001, one of the most outstanding examples of both urban planning and residential architecture of the Modern Movement in Spain. Currently, after more than 50 years, the neighborhood presents significant habitability and sustainability deficits that make daily life difficult for its inhabitants, 30% of whom are over 65 years of age. The Master Plan for the Integrated Rehabilitation of the Las Flores neighborhood (PDRI) is a planning tool and an executive instrument to promote the regeneration and urban rehabilitation of the neighborhood, valuing its identity with criteria of sustainability and efficiency, inclusiveness and community health.
