9788492861774: Benidorm: West Beach Promenade (English and Spanish Edition)

For years, the Benidorm urban development model has been criticised for encouraging high-rise buildings, overcrowding and land speculation. Yet, in contrast with different tourist resorts, where the coastline is systematically being destroyed by invasive residential complexes, and where immense ghost towns are empty most of the year, fifty years after its inception, the Benidorm model might in fact turn out to be the most sustainable one on the Spanish coast. It occupies very little land and there is virtually no use of private transport as every point in town is only a 10-minute walk away from the beach.

For the invitation-only design competition for the West Beach promenade, Carlos Ferrater created a large, public leisure space that brought the town into direct contact with the sea and provided a new seaside promenade for residents and tourists. Now Benidorm has a natural space built using a sustainable approach that fuses technology and craftwork, and accentuates local materials under the shadows and lights of the Mediterranean.

Book Description Actar Coac Assn Of Catalan Arc, 2011. Gebundene Ausgabe. Book Condition: Neu. Neu Schnelle Lieferung, Kartonverpackung. Abzugsfähige Rechnung. Bei Mehrfachbestellung werden die Versandkosten anteilig erstattet. - Nachhaltiges Benidorm: Das Strandpromenadenprojekt von OABBenidorms urbanes Entwicklungsmodell wurde über Jahre hinweg kritisiert, da es Hochhäuser, Überbelegung und Landspekulation begünstigte. Im Gegensatz zu verschiedenen anderen Urlaubsorten jedoch, in denen die Küste systematisch durch invasive Wohnkomplexe zerstört wird und wo riesige Geisterstädte das meiste Jahr über leer stehen, könnte sich das Modell fünfzig Jahre nach seinem Beginn als das nachhaltigste Modell der spanischen Küste erweisen: Es beansprucht nur wenig Fläche und es gibt praktisch keinen Privatverkehr, da jeder Punkt der Stadt nur zehn Gehminuten vom Strand entfernt ist. Für den Designwettbewerb für die Promenade am Weststrand hat Carlos Ferrater eine große öffentliche Freizeitfläche geschaffen, die die Stadt in direkten Kontakt mit dem Meer bringt und eine neue Uferpromenade für Bewohner und Touristen bietet. Benidorm besitzt nun einen natürlichen Raum, der mit einem nachhaltigen Ansatz gebaut wurde, der Technologie und Kunsthandwerk verbindet und lokale Materialien unter den Schatten und dem Licht des Mittelmeers zur Geltung bringt. 117 pp. Englisch.
