Tour to the Rough Rock Park
Access and itinerary to a protected space
Project 1997-2002. Construction 2003-04
Les Preses City Council
In the Natural Park of the Garrotxa Volcanic Zone in Les Preses, near Olot, there is a very special place, a sea of rocks, the product of the basaltic flow of the Croscat volcano and a difficult task of man in his struggle to get a measly patch of land to cultivate, levelling and isolating plots while piling the rocks, stones and slag into vast walls, mounds and huts. Its morphological and tactile roughness retains perception. The project tries to enhance the uniqueness of this landscape and activate the surprise factor in its discovery. A narrow line of strokes, in steel, allows you to traverse the space, and the steel, in certain episodes, holds the mounds that cross. The broken shape of the steel lines contrasts with the huge rock masses and establishes new clearings in the opening and middle acts.
