Palo de Mayo

JBVA + Eugenio Nuzzo + Anatole Poirier + Alex Roux

Paseo del Espolón – Concéntrico 10

The Missing Tree

In the square of the Parc del Espolón, a tree has disappeared from the grid. What happened to it? Why hasn’t it been replanted?

Starting from an anecdotal observation, our project appropriates this void, this anomaly becomes our opportunity. A Palo de Mayo takes its place, it’s the point of convergence of all the existing urban situations nearby; like a synthesis of the ingredients that make up this urban fragment. The freshness of the fountain at the Monumento al general Espartero, the soundscape of the Concha, the shifting lights of the peripheral roads. The verticality and materiality of the Palo de Mayo is on the same scale as the city.

Our proposal is an invitation to party, gather and exchange. It’s a celebration of the city as we dream it, as we conceive it. It’s an architecture around which we all converge, no interior space or orientation, here the entire space of the city is an infinite pavilion.

 

JBVA + Eugenio Nuzzo + Anatole Poirier + Alex Roux

The “Palo de Mayo” team was built around JBVA Studio, for which Eugenio and Alex worked. This association was born of a desire to work together again, a desire that Anatole joined. Thanks to this association, they are developing together the will to design an expressive and joyful architecture that attempts to respond to issues of public space appropriation as much as climate adaptation, and more simply a way of living in the city.
