Natural landscape integration and preservation
Nature is always in unstable balance, especially near urban settlements, which are in constant growth and suffer intense human intervention.

Because of this, natural environments are reduced and deteriorated, threatening the species that live there. And sometimes, it can reach a point where the destruction of these areas can also affect the people living around them.

Concepción metropolitan area is an example of this situation. This city is surrounded by water bodies which include the Bio-Bio river, the Pacific ocean and several lagoons and wetland areas.
Unfortunately, these natural elements have not been well protected and the city is growing over them without any concern for the environment that is being destroyed.

The Rocuant-Andalién marsh for example, which is the largest wetland area in metropolitan Concepción, has been reduced as consequence of the city’s growth.

This is affecting the habitat of a lot of species, including some birds in danger of extinction. The wetland is also losing is capability to absorb the storm water causing the surrounding neighborhoods to flood in winter.

To protect the remaining areas of the marsh, I proposed an urban wetland park.
In one hand it provides a large public space, which allows people to see, learn and research about these environments and all the local species.
The activities incorporated along the park help to achieve these purposes, while maintaining the wetland environment in balance.
It is also a way to create barriers to mitigate the damage of the city’s growth, the noises and contamination.
