The area of the project is located on the first periphery outside the city walls of Seville. It is connected with the rest of the city via the historical ring and structural two major axes, such as Avenida de Miraflores and Carretera de Carmona, which connect directly to the current suburbs and metropolitan area. The project proposes to reflect about processes on public, democratic participatory and civic. At the same time, it researchs on possible protocols for action in a high patrimonial value context for the identity of its inhabitants, as well as its potential capacity to transform this part of the city, worn in the course of time and by closing of the industries that once crowded the streets of workers.
The project is based on creating some predetermined open supports following a orthogonal generating system in the three dimensions of space. Following as differential module of 60, 120, 240, 480 cm. The project establishes the rules of play through the structural design and its load capacity, allowing some uses over others. Once established these formal protocols is time for civic negotiation. Through a system of democratic participation, uses and activities are set by specific periods of time. The temporality in using of these spaces will also be established by its users generating different levels of negotiation and conflict. The project involves a simulation of a possible state of uses after a hypothetical negotiation responding to different social ranks, cultural, age, etc.. The project offers an open catalog of technological materials and structural systems that respond to different uses . This catalog is open, so if a particular activity or material will need a concrete building system could be incorporated and used in accordance with the basic dimensions of the system.
Public buildings that host public spaces changing over time, governed by regular negotiation protocols with which it is decided what, how, when and where does each activity.
The supports on which settles the project might be divided into three:
La Trinidad glass factory
Appears as a new open space for the city full of programmable spaces by the users and equipped with the infrastructure and facilities required to perform almost any activity interest.
A new street-level complex topography for the city that promotes the relationship between users while the city offers new green spaces, an open air auditorium, tiny squares, corners along the dividing walls … Its modulation response to the dimensions of the glass factory following in this way a logical system that standardizes all the elements that compose it. A surface that supports outdoor activities with the capacity of generating different degrees of intimacy in the city.
Scaffolding / Clusters
These naked skeletons are negotiating engines to be appropriated by the activities agreed between users. Prototypes that support active participation by generating a changing image for the city. It remain as well the preexisting industrial identity.
