Alicante’s Seaport Promenade

MEMORY
2nd PRIZE
We aim to make this dock a safe recreational area for walking but we don’t forget its history, its status, its nostalgia.
We convert the waterfront into a place to watch, from the Mediterranean Sea, Alicante, present and forgotten at the same time. Nostalgia, collected stories by Joan Manuel Serrat song Mediterraneo.
Each stanza describes a situation in which we feel identified and we believe that the dock should provide, creating a place for remembrance and contemplation.
From the dock you can see,
-We see the Postiguet beach. A natural place inserted into the urban fabric of the city, in which we played as children, we have taken the sun, walked, and fall in love.
-We see the dark nights of winter and illuminated Santa Barbara Castle in the background, and the” face of the Moro” whowatches us.
-We see the sunset from ships. We listen to the clink of masts and cruise chimneys.
-We see fishermen, sailors and fans close to the sea, walking over, throwing rod, immersed in silence, and waiting.
-We see the Mediterranean sea calling us, it seeks us to approach and reach it.
These situations described in song are moved to the project idea and they draw a series of situations that are translated into sections that reconstruct the dock. When you go through the Levante dock, just get worry about looking… in all directions…
