Architect in Charge
Text description provided by the architects. 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.
These are configured as walls, inclined planes, stairs, steps, platforms, benches, handrails, etc.., all elements related with each other in a common language and not as isolated objects.
The main objective of the project has been to partially undo the common image of large hard elements imposed on an open space without shadows. This is achieved by making the surrounding vegetation to have continuity and direct contact with the new installation.
