scob architecture and landscape

  • Project: Sergi Carulla & Oscar Blasco
    Team: G. Yubero, X.Astaburuaga
    Area: 5 Ha
    Client: Meatzalde Goicoa Artists Asociation

    The Cultural Centre and MeatzaldeGoicoa Park Project is located in the municipality of Arboleda, very close to Bilbao, in the grounds of a former open-pit iron ore mine. Dug into the ground and promptly emerging from it, the building has been erected using the same mechanisms that man has been using to intervene in this place through mining, molding and bringing to the surface hidden topographies that today configure this landscape. The building is conceived as being the entrance of the future sculpture park, where the interventions intend to organize the paths, improve the vegetation of the rest areas and enhance existing historical elements.
