Waterpark. Zaragoza Expo 2008
Project reflecting the work of architects on the immaterial as important, or beyond what is visible. Architecture as a management of energy resources (water, wind and sun) becomes the driving force for activity, forming the mutations of the landscape. A network of technological elements characterizes the image of the Water Park and is responsible for putting in action a complex atmospheric, hydraulic and social system that manages simultaneous processes for the generation of energy, water treatment, irrigation, artificial flooding and leisure activities; in short, all the levels at which the Park operates. We intend, within such an “unsustainable” event like a World Fair, to demonstrate that nature can turn any urban waste into a new resource for the city.
