"The Nalón river and estuary occupies a narrow area between the river slopes along its course and a wider area constrained by hard edges at the mouth of the river. The main issue of our project is to show nature based and architecture strategies that allow the water edge to expand, allowing the free movement of sediment by the currents and the tide."
