  “.... look Mike, nothing´s goin a change, everything still remains the same…”  
  Contemporary City, trying to retrieve elements to shape its urban order and traditional structure, returns to the streets again,... but now from a high density residential view.  
  Unfortunately, today, there are no milestones to justify public spaces and highways, created to connect the successive urban expansions, replace the old pedestrian streets.  
  After changing the urban scale, finally cluster block urban environment will emerge just as a isolated block.  
  Maybe that´s why contemporary residential architecture seems to be screaming, assuming a landmark status in a cool urban landscape of walls and green areas instead of facades and gardens.  
  “…I´m sitting on the dock of the bay watching de ships role in....”  
  Urban squared blocks will be developed in four independent plots so individual disagreed building designs will be sure. To minimize it, we propose a neutral volume in the contacts assuming the corner as our landmark.  
  "Corner´s" uniqueness becomes the project´s soul: a gardened shade structure generously opened to the city, a unitary open space on which a single core articulates the building´s levels to rationalize vertical communications, simplify accesses, avoid residual spaces towards large, open, airy and shared common areas.  
  “…just to make this dock be my home.  
  Housing Typologies are all developed from a common design piece, a wide living space visually unified through a flexible in-out glass box.
