OP MORE GEOGRAPHY LESS ARCHITECTURE: OVERCOMING AN URBAN VOID, CONSTRUCTING AN ARTIFICIAL LANDSCAPE. Ed. by Francisco Burgos. Actar, Barcelona, 2014. Distributed in the U.S.A. by ActarBirkhauser Distribution, New York. 288 pp. 27 x 20 cm. ISBN 9788415391012 In English.
Publisher's description: The book presents the Madrid Rio Project (2005-2011), as a paradigmatic solution to the typical problem of voids and cracks in contemporary consolidated urban fabric: a large-scale intervention which tackles the restitution of an open wound in the consolidated city center by means of a totally new operation. The answer here was to build an artificial landscape over a large infrastructure of relocated underground road tunnels, along the course of the river. Six contemporary landscapes show the different ways of integrating the river in the urban center, transforming it into a new urban connector. The park, almost four miles long, crosses the city from north to south and offers all kinds of leisure activities: pedestrian and cycling lanes, sports pitches, playground areas for children, a riverside beach, kiosks, restaurants, scenic viewpoints, flooded areas, spaces where temporary events can be staged and a large cultural center.
