SYNTHESIS OF THE PROJECT
By Natasha Tourish
Parc de la Unitat is located inland amongst different types of residential blocks. The site is among skyscapers some and isolated the other ones, that makes a series of accesses turn up and visual among them that have been taken into account in the proposal.
The area of intervention is an area of approximately 6.782 square meters. Those were the pre-existences: a space with little visibility, the location in the inland of a residential block, the existing parking lot underneath, the existing topography and the need to supply with accesses to the underground parking lot existing in the site, as well as to the nursery placed in the park.
Consequently, the best way to intervene is to solve the parking and access to the parking lot and to the nursery and adapt to the perimeter, creating an open space and bright visuals. The difference in elevation between one end and another of the park is resolved with an incline of constant slope (4.5%) on the parking deck. In the scope of this treatment is terraced or banking slopes, with areas of lush vegetation and species diversity of trees and shrubs.
The proposal ends up being a single multipurpose space where different elements are adapted to the needs that arise: the pergolas that mark milestones and generators are proposed as areas of shade during the day and provided with light at night, some playground for children, strategically.
