productora: thermal park in dolores
‘thermal park in dolores’, an environmental intervention proposal for the town of dolores, within the buenos aires province of argentina by mexican practice productora integrates indoor and outdoor activities with a series of canals and walkways. a square grid incorporates classical landscape design elements including a symmetrical axis, labyrinths and follies within a complex of buildings. the aquatic park attempts to create a new relationship between buildings and the surrounding grounds by allowing bicyclists and boaters to traverse the site.

 

arcades of columns define the perimeters of the simple rectilinear volumes creating shaded open air verandas and porches. the interior spaces of the structures overlook the vegetated areas which have been sectioned by waterways and pedestrian paths. small scale bridges are placed at the intersections of ground and water.
