Aranzadi Park, by Aldayjover Architecture and Landscape, winner of an AZ Award
The design magazine Azure announced the winners of the AZ Awards 2016 at a ceremony in Toronto on 17 June. Aranzadi Park, designed by the Catalan architecture firm Aldayjover Architecture and Landscape, won the jury award for Best Landscape Architecture.
The park, located in Pamplona, was acclaimed by the jury as a benchmark of a new paradigm in the relation between public spaces and rivers, as well as with the agricultural landscape and traditions that have shaped the land over the centuries. The park’s design works a delicate balance between the century old vegetable gardens, the local people and the new flood overflow areas that offer relief to the river while avoiding damage and generating new wetlands.
Designed by architects Iñaki Alday and Margarita Jover, Aranzadi Park has won numerous international plaudits and was also a finalist in the International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam of 2014.
