Work developed by the Municipality of Vicente Lopez, after an open competition for a master plan
won by the team Cadau Gimenez Galvez Salama.
Associated to the winning Team of this Competition in 1999 as designer and
Director of Works.
Two Sectors developed out of a 5 km long Master plan. This two Sector were the North
area at Lincoln Schools and the South area, Club Municipalidad.
SEQUENCE STUDY-PROJECT AND DIRECTION OF WORKS.
Systematization of earth movements, accumulations of different types of
ground strata (stone-bedrock-dirt-grass). These movements are planned in
scale of actions and regarding perpendicular interventions to relate the
Park and its view points to de Rio de la Plata. These limits outline the
ranges of measurement of interventions with the topography, that are
systematized in their different repeated configurations but accomodating
different pressures that vary their configuration (each repetition varies in
angle, it curvature) establishing gradual differentiations.
Through the movement of the street blocks, the border of the street
could be banked for formalizing a special relationship enabling continuity
between the street surface and the landscape.
The vehicles can park to see the river, but they are not seen from the shore
(at the time these slopes create a barrier to the continuous traffic) and in
turn for their measures in height, they allow visual continuity with the
TOPOGRAPHY- A. WILLIAMS MONUMENT- FORESTATION
The topographic movement alternates views to the sited Amancio Williams
sculpture and the river, establishing also a sectional formal relationship
of sinuosity. The forestation follows also this movement with autoctonous
plants that need little maintenance.
