EUROPAN 13 Zagreb (HR) - Project Process

Ephemeral structures for leisure by the river

For Europan 13, the city of Zagreb proposed 16kms of a vast territory on the flood zone by the river Sava to revitalize. The winner Spanish team- Carlos Zarco Sanz, Zuhal Kol, Sara Palomar Perez - proposed interventions in various scales: temporary pavilions with different programs; clustering of multiple pavilions to host events; and subtle landscape interventions to transform the 4 sites into gathering grounds. First step in implementation of the project was for City of Zagreb to take over the jurisdiction under location from Croatian Waters, and therefore to hand it over to the Institution of Sports Facilities Management. The project was designed as a multi-year project, where the first summer event will be held in 2019, through activities of landscaping and installation of demountable facilities, such as multifunctional pavilions, cinema projection facilities, decking and sunshades, with purpose to carry out a rich sports / recreational / cultural / entertainment program.
