The program presents this new skatepark as a skate-square. The project works with the limits of the area, taking advantage of the gradients and the containment of the slopes in order to place all the elements for skate.
A thick, dense and kind blanket, trimmed off to the necessary minimum, to transform a stark interior into a space for the people. The intervention takes place in the “Castillo de El Real de la Jara”, a fortress dating from the 14th century, located on the highest point of the hill right north of the village, in the county and Natural Park of the North Range of Sevilla ...
The geometric patterns of landscape design, like circles, ovals and ellipses, pay a lot attention to the survival form of the Dehesa land in the western part of Spain where trees have big canopies and under their shadows many other plants and animals can live because of low temperature and high humidity in contrast with outside where sun’s heat does not allow grass can grow.
In order to restore the river beach of Goian -partially taken up by a roadway but very popular- and to reactivate the abandoned surrounding environment of the recently restored Fortress of San Lourenço -visually and physically secluded from the river beach and partially abandoned-, we are commissioned to reorganize a number of facilities that will give meaning to a future park in the only possible area: an intermediate hillside with steep slopes permanently facing south and totally disfigured by several quarries and illegal facilities.
DataAE shared with us their project Central Park in Sant Pere de Ribes, located some 35 kilometres west of Barcelona.
The project designs the urbanization of a foot path located on the South slope of the Puigcardener, a small hill where the history of Manresa began and where the present Old Town starts, in the South end of the town. The hill raises next to the Cardener river, taking advantage of its height, comparing to the level of the rest of the town, with a good view of the city entrance and the county surroundings.
The twisted valley aims to recover the pedestrian’s traffic footprint. Since the channeling works that were made in the 70s definitely skewed Elche’s Canyon continuity. For years the citizens of the city went through this place hardly enjoying it. This landform (which reaches 40 meters deep) gives the city a chance to travel in a few minutes to an area of ​​high environmental quality.
The park’s defining lines mark undulating paths that pull up to create a series of curving terraces. These topographic waves mediate a 10m/33ft elevation difference across the park allowing for a café to be tucked under the earthform.
Three public park "pockets" hooked onto the side of the central path display playful seating of recycled rubber. Each pocket has a different character: a reflecting puddles-seating amphitheater section, an ottoman seating section, and a “garden” section with ...
