Competition for the Headquarters of the Biosphere Reservea

Place: Arrecife, Lanzarote
Date: 2011
Design/direction: Miriam García García, Alejandro Alférez Aledo
Team: Javier Rincón Sánchez, Poliedro estudio


The headquarters of the Biosphere Reserve is conceived as an open and a new public space for citizens and visitors, for the city and the island. The new building will free up the street level to welcome the citizen in an urban passage, linking the city landscape and the sea.

The ramp located in this new public space will be the guiding theme of the Headquarters, organizing the space of the building up to the deck, where again the sky and the city meet in a "square", a a new landscape observatory..
