MAPO LIGHT TANKS, MARC BROSSA

The oil reserve had been a secret. Access was difficult and the tanks were hidden from outside: they had no facades. They were only an interior. The lack of maintenance transformed the large steel cylindrical tanks in ruins of a modern past, post apocalyptical relics of the Cold War.


The tanks cannot be perceived unless they are approached. They need to be experienced. Intervening in the tanks requires a sense of discovery, the staging of a sequence. They require designing with time. Instead of imposing pre-conceived programs from a simply functional approach, LIGHT TANKS proposes to capitalize on the intrinsic spatial and atmospheric qualities of the tanks to suggest what programs could be accommodated in an open-ended way, managed by citizen's organizations: 'program follows light'


A series of interventions explore the atmospheric conditions of the enclosure of the tanks by carving the steel enclosure and allowing light in, strengthening their powerful spatial and tectonic features. These interventions also stabilize the physical degradation of the tanks, provide safety, and connect them to the network of circulations of the site by creating anticipation, adding thresholds and staging sequences.


The rest of the site is planned as a 'productive landscape': a tree nursery that provides trees for the green spaces of the city in a local and sustainable manner. It also includes infrastructures for the collection, treatment and storage of rain water for its own use. The nursery becomes a framework that nurtures ecological diversity and social interaction.
