Faced with regional desertification, the Aymara ethnobotany emerges as an opportunity to heal the deteriorating landscape. The architectural infrastructure acts as a scientific engine that transmits the knowledge to the communities so that they can productively intervene their territory with reuse criteria using the abandoned platforms as support. Thus, environmentally the proposal seeks to reduce desertification, while socio-culturally aims to strengthen the Aymara heritage with traditional productive activities.
