Recreational area UPF

This project makes part of the arch-land series, searching to generate symbiotic relationships between architecture and landscape while keeping both formal and material autonomy.
The proposal is based on three main arguments: Firstly, the area should respond to its open space condition adjacent to a historical building by maximizing the views and become a landscape that would put in value the monumental façade. Secondly, being the only green space in a large Campus, space should be able to support successfully a very variable occupation schedule, from institutional receptions to high density recreational a picnic activity. Thirdly, the proposal was taken as an opportunity to develop an urban furniture system which would respond in a very specific manner to the local conditions of the site but could be also be configured in many different ways in other spaces with different conditions and requirements.
