The Ecija plaza is located in one of the hottest region of central Europe: Andalucía in Spain. Knowing this fact, the design strategy was to brand the city with an architectural urban symbol that reflects its historic traditions, the cities symbolic central plaza called “El Salon”, and that simultaneously resolves its extreme climate conditions.
The unprecedented Architectural/Landscape solution was an expansive undulating vegetal blanket of fuchsia colored bougainvillea plants. They hover above the plaza, on Teflon coated tension cables, to filter the harsh sunlight. They also define the various spaces and daily activities that occur below.
