TURNING A FORMER EUCALYPTUS PLANTATION INTO A PARK

National Park Commitee, ECOU

LOCATION :

Abu Ruya, Libye

SURFACE :

45 ha

COST OF THE WORK :

10 millions €

PROJECT MANAGER :

The Abu Ruya park is located a few miles from the mediterranean sea, close to the motorway linking Tripoli to Misratah. The site, over 45 ha, is relatively plane and partially planted by eucalyptus.

The global concept tends to increase the biodiversity on the site by slighly transforming the relief. The topographic variations take their design to the local water systems such as the wadi (dry river) or the dahia (depression). They will allow, on various scales, the creation of soil diversity, environment and microclimates, necessary to garden design.

Architecture is part of landscape, taking the bioclimatic principles linked to thermic inertia and the unavoidable protection against the sun. The building shapes will be massive and of telluric nature. It will offer the numerous features of a rock in its environment : erosion of a rock in a river bed, the cavity of a rift or a mass of fallen rocks.

The park is thought as a recreation and leasure place, it gathers sports, games, culture and pedagogy. It reveals, on a didactic point of view, bird species in a natural or anthropic environment.
