The serialization of landscapes along the ravine shows us the history of the place, in which different production systems have taken place. This simultaneity of production and exploitation systems has characterized the morphology of the ravine and the different landscape environments.
In recent decades the system of agricultural production and the system of aggregate extraction have been struggling to live together without success.
The proposal seeks to address this issue and look into what we call "productive landscapes" in which different production systems coexist and are replaced over time. Designing with "time" is something of great importance, according to us, since it is the same time that defines and models landscapes.
The project starts from the understanding and assumption of this land and its topographic morphology, shaped by the large craters and mountains, and enhancing the existing landscape. And permitting the succession of "productive landscapes" and set a great system of free public space at local scale, which combines leisure, agriculture and marketing, aggregate extraction and activities and uses of derived from these.
The project functionally organizes the territory through a series of logical patterns which develop over time and constitute a "growth in ring system" that allows to continue the extraction of aggregate at the same time that the territory regenerates and entering the new agricultural production system.
This growth in ring system, organizes and regenerates the territory, at the same time that the necessary aggregate production is obtained. As quarries are used up, the green mass and crops get the key role along with leisure activities.
