YEAR 2015 LOCATION Valencia STATE In project PROJECT SURFACE
The contest promotes the insertion of the garden within the city, with a performance in the Benimaclet neighborhood, the border between the garden and the city. Our approach is to create a permeable plant barrier that involves the city in the garden that surrounds it. We seek to reduce road traffic by encouraging the use of bicycles and walking.
The residential and tertiary buildable areas are grouped into 4 40-storey skyscrapers, watchtowers that coexist with points strategically located between green areas to attract neighbors and encourage the development of neighborhood activities. Urban gardens are basically distributed where they are today, connecting them to the city and becoming a new pole of attraction. The objective is to imbue the citizen with a natural environment that is currently missed in the city.
