Winning project of the Ruavieja Intervention Design Competition
A hortus conclusus or “closed orchard” is the typical figure of the garden in the Middle Ages. A small oasis isolated from the city in the form of a cloister. In the courtyard of the municipal police, in the heart of the medieval city of Logroño, we wanted to plant our own hortus conclusus, a colourful oasis with such autochthonous species as the Soria mushrooms.
It is our small tribute to the city of Logroño through the difficult decisions that the people of Logroño face every day; Pan hueco or Pan sobao, that is the question.
Project carried out in collaboration with Luis Castillón arquitectura.
