After more than seventy years in the business, the foundry went bankrupt and closed by the end of the 80s. It became a park, with more than one hundred hectares and home of dozens of local species, but due to its importance for the people it is more than just a park where to spend the weekend. Now Parque Fundidora hosts hundreds of events, ranging from cultural, sports, artistic and business conferences, among others. It receives on average ninety thousand visitors per month and is truly a place were people enjoy and share regardless of economic or social differences.
All around the park you can see different machinery used back in the old days, being the melting pots the most iconic ones of them. Just as these pots held different materials, Parque Fundidora holds different kind of people within an atmosphere of respect and joy.We developed a custom typeface to go with the interpretation of the melting pots, based on the dynamism of the park and taking as inspiration strong shapes as iron.
