In Mexico, the FONCA (National Fund for Culture and the Arts) chooses eight architects each year to develop a personal project. This is the result of the project that used the economic resources to make a public space.
The city of Uruapan is divided from north to south by the Cupatitzio River. 100 years ago, in the northern region of the river, the Barranca del Cupatitzio National Park was created, a public space with abundant vegetation.
The point where the river is born is a spring called, by a local legend, The Devil's Knee (La Rodilla del Diablo in spanish).
The project is designed at this point upon request. A bridge was requested to join
two zones, the east section and the west section of the park.
In addition to serving as a connector, the intervention generates points destined for solitude and rest.
The intervention surrounds the spring forming a concrete circle. Its function changes depending on the topography where it is located: bridge, stair or bench.
