Dezeen Debate features "excellent and ambitious" photographs of Buenos Aires slum before redevelopment

Villa 31 Cristobal Palm

The latest edition of our Dezeen Debate newsletter features Cristóbal Palma photographs of a Buenos Aires slum before its redevelopment. Subscribe to Dezeen Debate now.

Chilean photographer Palma photographed a slum in Buenos Aires before a project to redevelop the area has begun. Palma’s images of the community, which is home to more than 40,000 residents, showcased the ad-hoc buildings and dense streetscapes.

Commenters were intrigued, with one labelling Palma’s work “architectural photography at its very best”. Another described the photographic documentation as an “excellent and ambitious” project.

Other stories in this week’s newsletter that fired up the comments section included an opinion piece that discusses the design profession’s role in the “wildfire problem”, a grey stucco house in Houston by O’Neill McVoy Architects and a hotel in Rome by Ian Schrager’s The Edition group.
