to celebrate team Spain won the 2010 World Cup championship, :michitecture: will host a week long celebration – some design picks from Spain!(yay) first kick-off project will be the benidorm west beach promenade by architects Carlos Ferrater and Xavier Marti Gali.

為了慶祝西班牙獲得今年得世界盃足球冠軍,:米麒鉄雀:將舉行為期一週的慶祝- 介紹一些來自西班牙的設計作品!開心啊。( 原諒我的公器私用… )今天要介紹的這個來自巴賽隆那(Barcelona-based)的建築事務所 OAB在Benidorm海灘的景觀作品,只能說真的很搶眼!

基於海邊人行步道( seaside promenade ) 一些寬度的限制,設計師利用延展的平台塑造座椅休憩空間,同時也帶入不同層次的步行經驗,不管是階梯( steps )還是坡道( ramps )都可以讓遊客自由地從街道平面轉換到沙灘區。 

+ upper level promenade is at same level as street

+ pocket entrance to lower level: a mixture of different materials transition from colorful unit pavers (?) at upper level, to white concrete steps, to lower level wood deck, to the beach…

+ another pocket zone became a planting area with seating. here you can see the curvy overlook also creates some shade for lower level.
