Students of the Degree in Architecture of the University of Navarra will participate in the design of a theme park dedicated to the kiliki Caravinagre in Pamplona. The project has been presented by the mayoress Cristina Ibarrola, who has been accompanied by the director of the School of ArchitectureCarlos Naya. The initiative is part of the partnership agreement that Pamplona City Council has signed with the three universities to develop learning and service projects in the city.
The proposal will be developed by the students of the subject laboratory of Geometry and Form, supervised by professors Pilar Salazar and Fernando Alonso. Taking as reference letter the Gulliver Park in Valencia, the new recreational space will turn the face of Caravinagre into a great attraction "special, iconic and a reference for our city in the future," said Mayor Cristina Ibarrola. The City Council, which has not yet determined the location of the park, expects to have 40 to 50 ideas by the end of February. The projects will be exhibited to the public and citizens will be able to vote for their favorite proposal . Two other proposals will be chosen by a technical jury. The City Council wants to reach a agreement with the rest of the municipal groups and have a budget to implement the project "as soon as possible", announced the mayoress.
Cristina Ibarrola stressed that this is an exciting project . "It is of great magnitude, it unites the game with identity, nostalgia and recognition of one of the icons of our city," she said. Ibarrola has thanked the partnership with the School of Architecture of the University of Navarra and has relied on the talent of its students for the development of this space. He also noted the participation in the project of the Comparsa de Gigantes y Cabezudos de Pamplona.
In the same vein, the director of the School of Architecture, Carlos Naya has stated that it is a great opportunity for students. "We have found that when we propose to the students projects that have a real base the result is much more satisfactory, as we could see with the last partnership with the island of La Palma and the design of houses for those affected by the Tajogaite volcano, located in the Cumbre Vieja mountain range".
Naya thanked the City Council for their confidence in the students of the School of Architecture and pointed out two important elements of the project: on the one hand, the identity and the rooting with the Pamplona society and, on the other hand, the playful sense of the space aimed at children. "In Spain we often see design as something superficial, but design must reach the activity that we usually develop, the ordinary life, and contribute to improve it", he concluded.
