Emplazados en Adra - Competition winner


j salinas in collaboration with Claudia Cruz from Estudio Unitekt, Mr. Antonio Garcia and Sir Paco Parra wins a competition in Adra for restructuring of "Puerta del Mar" square and building one kiosk - restaurant beside the city hall.

the main idea for the design, was holding the flux of movements of the people by the existing square, and create a pergola that protect the square and the kiosk from the solar incidence.

so the first step was creating a shape (pergola) that could hold deciduous climbing plants (ivy) that could work fine for all the year (protecting during the summer and leaving the sun rays during the winter).
