The project of Rio Madrid mrío arquitectos asociados and West 8, On which it was published a long articleon Plataforma Arquitectura, has finally opened to the public after 6 years of work. For those unfamiliar with Rio Madrid, we say it is an ambitious urban development project that aims to link the precious natural landscape with the urban environment of Madrid, in particular with the Manzanares River.

Rio Madrid is the most important place of the city of Madrid, in recent decades, and probably one of the most ambitious projects of public space built recently in Europe. In 2003, the City of Madrid has decided to bury the first main section of the ring road that ran on the banks of the Manzanares River, six kilometers long, built 30 years ago, resulted in the disappearance of the ties between the city and its river, which has been isolated, inaccessible and invisible.

The team led by Ginés Garrido, Porras and La Casta, Rubio Alvarez-Sala and West 8 won the international competition held in 2005 to implement the project of public space in the area. The project, now completed, connecting the city of Madrid with precious outdoor landscapes that surround it and then the Manzanares River has become the point of connection between the city and its geography, with the construction of a tree-lined corridor on its banks and a dozen bridges and walkways that cross-link the neighborhoods and large infrastructure beyond the fragmented traffic.
