Parc del Nord
PROJECTS I CONSULTING
Earth Study and Correction
Drafting of technical requirements for the executive project for onsite earth walls, with earth reuse. We defined the construction details, technical characteristics of materials and equipment, formwork system, quality control program and budget.
The project P.A.R.C presented by INLANDSIS with Adria Escolano and David Steegmann won the competition del Parc del Nord de Sabadell has been selected for 1st prize among 33 proposals. The proposed design aims to recover the ancient Torrent del Capellà, today occupied by residual anthropic constructions, as the natural corridor for water and biodiversity in the north of Sabadell. The regenerated landscape, is grounded in a topographic reconfiguration whereby depressions are designed for water retention and are outlined by a woodland landscape. This sunken area frames the park’s central path and creates the core space for recreation and activities. Raised areas at the interface with the urban realm include Mediterranean woodland planting which borders the entrances to the neighborhoods in proximity to the park. At the intersections between the central promenade and the perpendicular connecting paths, agenesis of minimal architectures will assemble the park’s activities. These evolving structures are designed to be able to grow and incorporate technological advances according to park users demands now and into the future.
