Ambitos Reciprocos

Client Junta de Compensacion de Valdebebas
Date 2009 (competition)
Size 80 ha
Budget €100,000,000
Collaborator DAVID FLETCHER STUDIO

The urban park of Valdebebas is an 80 hectare landscape project to complement and define a new mixed use neighborhood with a 1 million square meter building program in the northern periphery of Madrid.  Under the umbrella of landscape design, the project deploys a new sustainable multivalent model to address both the scarcity of natural resources – water, food and fossil fuels – as well as the lack of connection between Madrid, its new exurban territories and the greater regional landscape.

In this new landscape, aesthetics are a link to more complex relationships that promote ecology, sustainability and human activities. The project provides a continuous space of production between the natural and urban areas. Harmonious and symbiotic interactions emerge through the creation of an effective and limited ‘living infrastructure’.
