Plaza de Santa Ana – Concéntrico 09

An ode to the fruit, the earth and the people that help bring it to the table, to our lips.

The project is inspired by and dedicated to the strawberry pickers and estimated 1 million seasonal workers in agriculture across the EU.

An oversized, upside-down and inside-out strawberry is nested in Plaza Santa Ana, against the backdrop of Iglesia de Santa María de Palacio and the Parque infantil. The soft plywood exoskeleton contrasts with the smooth stone textures. A small opening asks us to bow to discover the strawberry like interior: a softred cocoon with seed shaped light rays. A rich and peaceful introverted space, foreign to the outside world. The structure cantilevers over Calle Marqués de San Nicolás, a contrasting tease visible from far ahead.
