LOCATION | Jardin del rio Turia, (Valencia)
LENGTH | 5764m
YEAR | 2014
IN COLLABORATION WITH | Arch. Carlos Campos
TIPOLOGY | Landscape and urbanization project
STARTING CONDITIONS |
We were sourrounded by the ancient Turia river, which turned over into a urban activity, because of its wide green space as well as its unique location in the city. The light level of use implies activities and a diverse enjoyment. One of the activities that has sufferd a huge increment is the sport one, mainly for bicycle use, running or walking, taking into consideration the fact that its linear development enhances the uses previously mentioned.
JOINING CITY CIRCUIT |
It has been stated the neccessity of joining the city circuit due to its central location as well as the hightest use, allowing an improvement of the current circuit conditions that arbitrarily have been defined for years. The project tries to distinguish a preferent space for runners, avoiding somehow a mess invasion into other spaces of the garden. That fact implies drawbacks for people who are using that space for unwinding from the routine.
FUNCTIONAL INTEGRATION |
The circuit has a lenght of 5.764 meters from Nou d’Octubre bridge and Ángel Custodio bridge. This circuit could be connected for income enlargements, with other paths that were joined in the rest of the river path as well as in another parts of the city characterized for the same use, so that it could be established an authentic net of sport spaces for running .
