The intervention area is a remaining ground of 80 ha resulting from the urban intervention of the Barajas Airport in Madrid. It is a ruling plan of the Spanish yards.
Since the beginning of the project, the execution of the constructions in the urban area was based on one idea. It needed to be made out of biodegradable materials and also be a creation that has a low impact on the environmental CO2. In short it’ll be an auto-sufficient space with energy autonomy and of low maintenance.
In the axis direction, there’s a crossing platform which is the intervention spine. It’s aiming to lodge not only the technical facilities of maintenance, but also other activities, such as restaurants, as well as the localization of all events concerning several activities such as dance, theatre, music and exhibitions, managed by an institution and an annual planning programme.

FACTORS TO BE CONSIDERED IN THE SPATIAL INTERVENTION
a. Sunlight for photovoltaic solar energy to produce electric energy.
b. Sunlight for solar energy – to produce hot water used in W.C. heating waters and heating environment.
c. Windmill – wind energy to produce electric energy, demarcation of the way of the prevailing wind.
d. Solar radiation and reflection in the water mirror.
e. Intense air quality renewal due to the strong pollution of Madrid, increased by the fact of being close to the airport.
g. Acoustic conditioning, the drone of the engines when airplanes take off.
g. Support services.
h. Functional areas for exhibitions and shows, restaurants, support service and technical areas.
i. Areas for play and restaurant.
j. Functional circuits and courses:
1. Pedestrian and cycle routes
2. Equipment security
k. Functional scheme of the platform space and the segmentation in relation to the constructed element:
1. Rigid pavements or not – staying and passing
2. Vertical elements, space segmentation or creation of closure spaces, acoustic protections and windbreak.
3.Horizontal elements – covering enclosure or intermediate floor of exterior or interior space, public or services.
4. Sloping covering elements for solar energy support or windbreak barriers
5. Glass elements for closure spaces.
