microspaces santander, public space + playground | microspacios santander espacio publico y campo de juego
We consider a public space adapted both to the site as well as to the citizens, where people can meet, walk and experience a new and different urban feeling. We propose a city-scale ergonomic surface to promote leisure activities as well as greater relationships among its users. A surface with steps that allow visitors to sit and watch cultural and sporting events. A place which becomes a stage to promote coexistence among neighbours. A new warped surface with marks on it proposing various ways of using its different situations and games: sliding, jumping, lying down and so on, which are now part of the new relationship with the ground.
