The Tibidabo Welcome Square is the new introduction to the main elements of the attraction park Tibidabo. Solidarity, sustainability and education at its core, the new square opens up towards the beautiful city, inviting visitors of all generations to contemplate over the panoramic view of Barcelona.
This new modern, yet playful welcome square has been branded by the vertical garden covering the welcome buildings facade. Now the welcome building turns into one of Barcelona’s biggest insect Hotels transforming the amusement park into an inter-species attraction. The facade makes reference to the park surrounding the Tibidabo, limiting visual pollution by blending in with the natural environment. The green growing façade is a strong statement about the facing threats of environmental challenges faced in cities.
In addition to the square, MiAS Architects provided designs for Daisy shaped parasols spread out over the square. Chairs and benches each of individual shape are gathered around as if providing family portraits of geometric shapes and colors. The combination underlines the simple yet joyful design of the park.
While the Daisies open their white and green petals over the visitors, below the chairs continue the playful design. These simple and round shaped green and yellow iron stools and tables are gathering around the parasols, which are anchored to the ground by benches designed as leaves. Plain iron rods in a zigzag course hold the round seat and lead to the chairs backrest who’s geometrical shapes change between circles, triangles and inverted triangles.
The colorful design of the furniture compliments the squares design and familiar program with its simple yet eye-catching design.
