10 ideas about estonoesunsolar _ 28 placemaking examples in the city of Zaragoza


estonoesunsolar_2009+2010_gravalosdimonte copia1_objetive. Contemporary cities present a wide variety of unresolved issues, as shown by the many different abandoned empty plots and empty buildings existing in the urban fabric. This situation has been taken advantage of by the inhabitants of Zaragoza as an opportunity to intervene directly in the city. The “Estonoesunsolar” programme of Zaragoza City Council, commits to the recovery of PUBLIC SPACE as the backbone of today’s city, through the occupation of empty plots for tremporary public use. “Estonoesunsolar” started off with temporary interventions in abandoned plots in the historical quarter of the city, of public and private ownership.  Later, given their great success, they spread to the rest of the city.The programme offers a quick answer to the needs of each neighbourhood, analysing the socio-economic conditions, amenities and green spaces that already exist, as well as the deficiencies of each area.  Social cohesion is favoured through citizen participation processes. At the same time, many different cultural and educational activities have been carried out that emphasise the value of the interventions, inviting citizens to experience these spaces. The program’s initial goal was to develop an Employment Plan, which should involve 50 workers for cleaning empty plots of the Historic Center of Zaragoza. On that premise, it raised the possibility of developing a set of proposals, that beyond strictly complying with the objectives, allowed the temporary occupation of the empty plots, offering a range of temporary uses for these frequently misunderstood places.. These proposals start from the program “everyday gaps (los vacíos cotidianos),” held in 2006 within the framework of  “en la frontera (on the edge)” of Zaragoza, in which the same authors were able to begin testing the ideas about the temporary occupation of sites, this time in an “artistic” context, with different constraints but holding the same concepts.

2_ the accident. The proposals arise from the observation of different and numerous existing sites in the context of Zaragoza historic city center, assumed as unexplained gaps in many cases (and surprising in most of them). In some of the sites, the demolition of a small wall has been enough for a sudden vacuum to appear, showing cold in their nakedness, out of context, and that surprisingly opens up new visuals, hidden until then, to create a new contemporary urban space. There is a reading of the city with the codes of an “non-written urbanism“, spontaneous in some cases, and consolidated in others. In this regard, and given that applications are developed following studies of needs demanded by associations and neighbours, it is a flexible tool to start responding to specific problems.

3_the  vacuum. Value has been put in the suggestion of emptiness, the void, the invisible and silence. These temporary loosening of the plot is a dynamic tool, changing (temporarily), allowing a flexible and alternative reading of the city and the public spaces. It aims for non-material and ethereal solutions , expressing the provisional nature of its presence and establish a dialectic with their in-built environments. Vacuum is hoped to be the creator of situations and events.

4_the name. From the outset it was considered essential to find a name for the interventions, which give meaning to a program without program, without a property owner, to a un built site, to a nameless space. The program was called “estonoesunsolar”(this-is-not-an-empty-site). It was desired to escape from the constraints imposed by words and their meanings, with the intention from the beginning, to propose a new look (this is not a site, this is not what it looks like, look at it with different eyes …). In short, it was an invitation to think again, to imagine possible contents, to propose new situations and create passionate places (to make a privileged place from every idea). (more…)

estonoesunsolar llega a tres nuevos solares de Zaragoza


El Ayuntamiento de Zaragoza, a través de la Sociedad Municipal de Vivienda y en el marco del programa experimental estonoesunsolar, llevará a cabo tres nuevas intervenciones que permitirán recuperar para uso ciudadano espacios que actualmente no tenían aprovechamiento. Los 3 solares en los que se actuará son los de las esquinas de Mas de las Matas con Marques de la Cadena (Arrabal) y Miguel Labordeta con Aniñón de la Cañada (Delicias) y el situado entre las calles Sauce, Antonio Fernández Molina y Juventud (Santa Isabel).

Plano de los emplazamientos de los 28 solares recuperados a través el programa municipal estonoesunsolar, metro espacio-temporal, superficie, coste, asociaciones involucradas, y ámbito de difusión entre 2009 y 2010. Los primeros 14 solares se concentran en el Casco Histórico ya que en 2009 la iniciativa es impulsada por su Junta Municipal.  Entre julio y diciembre de 2009 se “reciclan”, a través de  procesos de microcirugía urbana, un total de 14 solares, casi 10.000 m² transformándos en áreas de juegos infantiles, canchas deportivas, huertos y áreas verdes ,en colaboración con los colegios, asociaciones para la infancia, centros de mayores y otras asociaciones vecinales del distrito. En 2010 el programa se transforma en un plan municipal extendiéndose a toda la ciudad, pasando de una escala de barrio a una escala territorial.  Esto permitió llevar a cabo unas intervenciones, a modo de acupuntura urbana, de integración en el paisaje, de definición de áreas de borde urbano e integrando nuevos espacios verdes en los ámbitos de las riberas del Ebro. Otros 14 solares, uno por cada distrito y por un total de 32.000 m², se transforman en parques, áreas de juegos infantiles, áreas deportivas y huertos. Todos los proyectos son fruto de la colaboración entre la Oficina Técnica estonoesunsolar de la Sociedad Municipal Zaragoza Vivienda, las Juntas de cada Distrito en el que se intervenía, y un total de casi 60 asociaciones.
