Abstract

The territory, morphology and urban order of Santa Cruz de Tenerife constitute a singular unity. The datum is to be found in the design of this island, which is closely related, even with its history, to the orographic system. Santa Cruz de Tenerife is shaped by two unique events. The first, geographically and territorially recognizable, is the Barranco de Santos; the second consists of the shape, only apparently irregular, that delineates the ample green space of Parque Municipal García Sanabria. Both of these systems have been the targets of a particular and demanding re-design, or restoration project, aimed at rehabilitating the site, executed with skill by the architects Juan Manuel Palerm Salazar and Leopoldo Tabares de Nava. The important element is the fact that these two events are the expression of the island's very life. Their rehabilitation has returned to the inhabitants both the green spaces and the possibility to use the infrastructures that determine them. Thus it strengthened a sort of reconciliation between the natural balance of the city and the use the inhabitants make of these restored green spaces. The success of the project was ensured by the architects’ understanding of the indivisible unity of the two systems, and of their having returned to the island’s inhabitants green spaces not only correlated with the city’s history, but above all destined to be experiences with a modality of usage and not of consumption.
