Music Park in Seville
Music Park is a unique masterplan in terms of urban renovation and integration linked to Seville underground infrastructure works. The park ensures accessibility to Cocheras station, located at the centre of the park, and reinforces a connection between houses located on both sides of the station.
The Park is located in an existing degraded area, lacking of facilities, and known historically as a land dividing the nearby quarters (Águilas and Los Prunos neighbourhoods) and isolating their inhabitants.
It is organized along a north-south axis that gently ascends to the station’s level. Transversal circulations connect the main promenade with the surrounding streets and squares.
In the East side, the level difference is solved with retaining walls embracing and protecting the plazas at the surrounding neighbourhoods levels. There is a lift and an escalator next to the station entrance for accessibility.
In the West side, the level difference is resolved with a retaining wall that goes parallel to the underground tunnel and curves itself creating the ramp directing to the main West entrance. There is another lift for access at the corner between the pedestrian street Águila Marina and Águila de Oro street.
Quality pavement materials have been used: ceramic tiles, and lime and granite cobblestones. The patterns, inspired by an existing ceramic pattern found in the Reales Alcazares in Sevilla (the Moorish Royal Palace), create a geometry that unifies all the different areas.
There are two hundred trees of 23 different species, selected for their size, foliage, flowers, shading capacity, fruits and symbolism. There are perennial trees, providing green all year long; deciduous trees, which will announce the springs and autumns; and semi-perennial leaf trees, blossoming at different times of the year, composing with the blossoming flowers a floral calendar.
