Plaza Santa Ana
Daniel Montes – Sara Canalejas
The Santa Ana square is a new space, which in addition to serving as a courtyard for the new buildings, allows the connection between the adjacent streets, becoming to a large extent a place of passage. It is worth highlighting the elongated shape of this space, with numerous nooks and crannies, equipped with urban furniture located in a very dispersed manner.
Taking the card game of the designers Charles & Ray Eames as a reference, from the 18 panels supplied, 108 identical pieces with slits in their sides were produced. These machined pieces, easily manipulated by one person, are assembled to generate infinite artefacts, capable of transforming the square depending on their size and location.
The intervention is based on the construction of three artefacts, placed at specific points, generating tensions, new routes and visually connecting the space as landmarks in such a fragmented square.
