"Back to Nature is a project that propose to develop a sustainable and experimental way of living together. It is possible to create new ways of living our cities creating new synergies between the environmental, social, economic and cultural dimensions. Urban development and ecological restoration must be thought together. By pushing those thematic to the limit of the site, we can create a new mixed-use co-housing complex in respect of nature with a limited impact on the planet earth."
