Trabajo

what?

  • Terrachidia is a project aimed at protecting and revitalizing cultural heritage.
  • We work in areas under threat of depopulation and climate change. These are places that run the risk of disappearing altogether, and their memory along with them.
  • We work in historical centers and rural enclaves, where the architecture, the inhabitants, and the environment form an unbreakable triad. We protect cultural landscapes.
Oasis

why?

  • We believe that heritage is not merely a legacy from the past but an essential tool for the future, given its unquestionable educational and social value, its great economic potential, and its significance to international cooperation.
  • Cultural diversity expands the range of possibilities for societies and enriches human values and abilities.
  • Heritage has been, is, and will continue to be one of the most important bridges between cultures.
Desarrollo sostenible

how?

  • By revitalizing the memory of places and restoring their architecture, their landscape and their cultural traditions.
  • By working arm-in-arm with local populations.
  • By creating social and economic fabrics that understand, value, and commit to their cultural and natural resources.
  • In our intervention projects we work with local master builders with extensive experience in traditional architecture and building techniques, who become essential parts of the project.
