La Orotava Botanical Garden
Awards: 1er Prize, International Architecture Competition Description:
La Orotava Botanical Garden is one of the touristic, historical, cultural and environmental emblems of Tenerife Island. The garden rises with an architectural project that presents a circuit through the different areas containing the various environments of the garden, delicately connecting the urban context with the natural environment using the garden as a start and end of the visit. Water plays a major role in a garden with these characteristics. The waterfall, as a converging point for the various streams of water running through the site, is the center of the garden.
