"The fundamental problem occurs with the immigrant population, especially Romanians of gypsy ethnicity. The project focuses on the idea that the solutions to be adopted do not consist only in the reconstruction of decent housing, but to promote urban strategies that enable the gradual social integration of this population in the neighbourhood of San José and in Almendralejo in general. This is the only way to achieve a balanced city (oras echilibrat in Romanian) in terms of social equity."
