The Hiber Space

Rintala Eggertsson Architects

Ebro River – Concéntrico 08

 

The site of this project is a popular urban park in the town of Logrono, La Rioja, on the shore of the river Ebro.

The visitors to the pavilion will be invited to enjoy the cooling shade under the fully grown leafy trees and to watch the flow of the river while the spots of the sun travel across the walls of the pavilion. Observing the everyday beauty and simple reality that surrounds us hopefully makes it easier for us to take better care of our surroundings. The flow of the river is a reminder of the time that passes and how the choices we make today influence the flow down the stream all the way to estuaries and the global ocean, the future.
The world is interconnected, from small mountain streams high up to the depths of the sea.

The Greek and the Romans called this mighty river Hibēr or Iber, giving the name for the whole Iberian peninsula and the Iberian people.
This linguistic fact underlines the great symbolic importance of the river and that it should be noticed, visited, and discussed more often.

The Hiber Space river pavilion will be designed and built during two last weeks of August 2022 and will be made of recycled plywood and natural stones around the existing trees.
