This project proposal for the Ex-Communications Battalion 121, which won the first prize in the National Ideas Competition, stems from the idea of bringing the Rio Parana to the city district. Following a study of plastic forms generated by the river in Rosario, its vegetation, and topography, Bruno Bianchi, Damian Bojko, Etcheverry Nelson, Ricardo Etcheverry and Fabbri Juan sought to reproduce the essence of its main aspects, interspersed with the layout of the city and the buildings of the pavilion. Thus, river and city merge into the site, integrating the landscape, cultural, productive, sports, and housing, in a single place possible to generate an engine of development in the area concerned.
