2010. Light rail station and garden, Alicante, Spain.
TRAM STOPS COMPETITION FINALIST
Light rail station and garden. San Juan, Alicante. Spain.
In summer’s days, a lot of people go and come from the San Juan’s beach. We look for a shelter to protect traveller in (from) the sunny hot days in Alicante, since sun in these parts is ungrateful at some hours of the day.
We designed a huge white arch, palm leaf shaped, which is born from the ground and raises until 4 meters high, casting 60 meters of shadow. This is the most important objective.
At sundown, the tram shelter is a light white arch with bright edges. In the distance, from the Holanda Street and San Juan beach, a thin curved lit line is seen, where Tram stops. (In pink, the proyect site)
