scob architecture and landscape

  • Project: Oscar Blasco (S.T. Ajuntament)
    Area: 5.600 m2
    Client: Cornella's City Council

    The large existing drinking water pipes that are extended below the surface are responsible for the overall system of squares and passages that structure the neighborhood. The new proposal reinforces this logic of the urban form and recognizes, at a surface level, the trace of this strong infrastructure, emphasizing the possibility of a comfortable crossing of this space in this direction.The continuity of the project towards the Pasaje Llobregat has been thought out with the same guidelines, aiming to reinforce the global concept of this set of public spaces. The desired relationship between agriculture and city has resulted in a "square-field", where the most visible patterns of nearby agricultural structures help in attributing form and identity to the place.
