URBAN PLANNING FOR THE EL MORROT DE LA SAVINOSA

-

Tarragona

Contest for the urban redevelopment of the Morrot de la Savinosa. Diputación de Tarragona and COAC. Tarragona. 2015-2016 Open competition.4rd prize The proposed intervention in the Morrot de la Savinosa improves the connectivity of the free spaces of the coastal strip thanks to the creation of a coastal park equipped for health. The project responds to the citizen's will to enjoy emblematic equipment and recovers the spirit of the original complex, destined for health and linked to the sea. The free space of the Morrot de la Savinosa will be occupied by transitable spaces constituted by the area of walk and the roadways, and surfaces of landscape delimiting the natural heritage of Tarragona. A system of well defined public spaces and routes is proposed. From the existing white pine forest to the west, you can access the old preventorio and the Explanada de nodía. The Patio del Preventori communicates with the Central Pavilion and gives access to the great central Plaza.
