DEVELOPMENT OF THE SITE FOR ZARAGOZA 2008 INTERNATIONAL EXPOSITION
Establishment of the venue for Expo 2008 along the banks of the river Ebro on a section that runs through Zaragoza. The overall project devised by Batlle i Roig organized a series of terraced platforms that descend towards the water and transition into buildings, pavilions, amphitheatres and footbridges over the river. The detail of the central public space, also designed by Batlle i Roig, is based on the idea of turning the area into a water drop garden in order to echo the theme of the Expo.
