In this competition proposal, the site’s agricultural history, its deep cross-section and the system of creeks and streams that currently and formerly lined the Valdebebas landscape were used to provide a flexible circulation network of green paths that connected important points in and outside the site. These green corridors allowed the ground to
be inhabited and served many purposes: from the pragmatic benefits of microclimates and the creation of new habitats for birds and animal life, to the embedded landscape features and architecture that showcased life-size exhibits of Iberian geology to provide settings for extreme sports such as rock climbing and mountain-biking.
Produced by ArquitectonicaGEO with Roberto Rovira as Lead Designer and Senior Landscape Architect for the project.
