Garnica

The wood of Concéntrico

Garnica wood plays a fundamental role in the circular economy, as it is renewable, recyclable, reusable and biodegradable.

The company, with its origins in La Rioja, promotes the use of local timber, plantations and local forests from which the wood is extracted, contributing to the generation of benefits for rural areas. The planting of poplar trees is an activity with a long tradition on the banks of the river Ebro and its tributaries, so much so that in many riverside towns their social and cultural landscape could not be understood without them.

Intervenciones con madera Garnica

Fifteen of the festival’s installations use Garnica’s wood, where we find three types of boards: Efficiency Poplar, Reinforced Globulus Poplar and “recycled” boards; 2500x1220mm with thicknesses ranging from 12mm, 18mm to 25mm, standard used in the calls for entries.

Efficiency Poplar
Board composed entirely of European poplar from sustainable plantations. This wood provides lightness, quality and ease of cutting.

Reinforced Globulus Poplar
Composed of poplar faces and core reinforced with eucalyptus of the Globulus variety, both species from fast-growing European plantations. The core interiors are made of eucalyptus to improve the strength of the board.

“Recycled” boards
Plywood that has suffered some kind of defect in the manufacturing process, and although it cannot be sold, it is revalued for other uses.

Throwing shade

Resignifying the Plaza Sin Nombre, a place that has not been “baptised”, a place claimed by the neighbourhood as a meeting place and identity space for the different cultures.

The Garden of Intersections

An inhabitable tribute to the soils of the city and of its territory, a sequence of mineral filled rooms, where to play, dig, or draw on the ground itself.

Fuente urbana

The fountain was the last link in the art of taming water and bringing it into the city, before it reached the tap in the house. It was a symbol of urbanity.
