The proposal for the future fair
grounds in La Rinconada
must address to two completely different temporary situations: the few intense
days of the fair and the park that it is the rest of the year.
The objective of our proposal is to
make the two moments as compatible as possible.
The free space occupied by the stalls
and the Infierno Street can generate a distressing bare area when there is no
Our proposal aims to ensure that
this necessary empty space, which allows the easy installation of the stalls
during the fair, does not make the park into an inhospitable space.
To achieve this, the organization of
the stalls within the park seeks to avoid big leveled areas and to answer to an
organic system rather than a tectonic system.
That is, a park where it is possible
to set up the stalls but avoiding as much as possible big empty spaces.
The stalls are located along a
continuous line to attain the largest perimeter possible to generate extra
spaces that break the continuous emptiness destined for stalls.
Our proposal is not based on urban
planning criteria (as the Seville Fair is), but is ruled by laws closer to the
organic in nature.
A ribbon that curls and generates
park spaces in its interior, on the borders, as well as along the ribbon
The future fair ground is formed by
different layers that configure the multipurpose and flexible park capable of
accommodating all type of events, from the most intense fair to normal park
THE FAIR, THE LINEAR PARK AND THE
GARDEN OF HILLS
THE FAIR / THE STANDS
The organic ribbon where the stands
are located twists to generate interior spaces and exterior as well. Spaces
that are more sheltered or more open.
A whole world of variable situations
which bestow spatial richness to the park layout.
The surface destined to the stands
along this ribbon is greater than that required. This fact allows the
appearance of intermediate spaces between the stands, which are again invaded
by the linear park.
Access routes to the park, as well
as the fairground are achieved from the perimeter of the ribbon in specific
points connected to the car parking and the general urban situation.
