This simple brick house is located in Herradura, Formosa Province, a few kilometers away from the Paraguay river, in a humid territory of swamps, colored clay and intense vegetation. It is implanted in a large lot of 80 meters deep, next to a set of cottages and a recreational craft workshop of Palo Santo [lingum vitae] and cotton.
A brick wall protects the inside from the strong sunset and sifts privacy. In addition, grinding sliding panels are moved in its interior respecting existing arboreal positions.
If “architecture starts when you carefully put two bricks together”, this isothermal material retains fresh temperatures during warm days, and vice versa. Training centers for brickmakers from Pirané, Clorinda and Misión de Laishí, among others, ease the firing and acquisition of the material. This local industry allows the community to develop a constructive key component such as the brick.
