In a place such as Cordoba, a project without courtyards it is like a garden without flowers. The housing complex is a short, compact and porous block. Each house is different, but always has two patios, one of access and another more intimate. The courtyard, introverted space by definition, represents the essence of the Mediterranean tradition. It is a space that looks at the sky, the sun and the stars. The patio is the best of our architecture.
