Pista viva: revelation of the Carlota´s landscape

 

The transformation of La Carlota which is currently an military air base, into an urban park values, protects and projects a better social and environmental future for Caracas. Pista viva is based on ecological, social and economic considerations that ensure the project´s viability and sustainability. At the local scale a new urban dynamic develops in terms of real estate and infrastructure. The park itself is structured by the runway transformed into a tree lined boulevard; paths that lead people from one side of the park to the other, connecting parts of the city, while at the same time channeling rain water; cells of spaces that can host various activities; and new facilities that take advantage of existing structures whenever possible and try to minimize their impact on the land and the environment. Management of the park´s transformation creates discussion scenarios with the areas neighbors, and all citizens of Caracas who participate in the decision making process.
