Our cities are immersed in the shadows of the past. The abandoned buildings rage on, showing that there isn’t a direct answer to the current inhabitants needs. But how do we keep the eclecticism of our towns, while creating projects that reflect the today’s desires? Viral architecture emerges as a bridge between past and present, where the scientific notions of parasitism are incorporated in the architecture. "Anarchy in the city: the viral architecture as a rehabilitation method of the city" is a project where the architectonic preexistence was cut and filled with new bodies and paths shaped as parasites, enhancing the temporal contrasts.
