Valldaura bootcamp workshop

Valldaura‘s unique and remote location determines the means of transportation available and possible. Its proximity-distance from the Barcelona, in a combination with altitude, makes each ascend an interesting adventure. Transportation from point A to point B does not fully reveal the potential of the site.

The idea of walking the distance all the way to the Valldaura, without mixing with car traffic, can be realized in the valley. The valley can serve as a natural transition area from the city limits to Valldaura. Its existing trails bring the opportunity to walk the  territory, feel the distance between the site and outskirts of city and understand the remote qualities of the future Valldaura Green Fab Lab.

Using the existing trails, combined with a new system of cableways can signal a new flux of activities to this area.  Thinking while walking – a mixture of individual physical and mental abilities, exhaustion, fatigue in
a specific climate and spectacular surroundings. The idea of having two tracks, one on the ground, the other above the surface, mutually connected, can form an interesting relationships and links.

Network of cableways, pulleys, cable cars, and poles defines the system of transportation of persons or supplies. Cable cars can be towed uphill by a cluster of hot-air balloons or can use water and gravity to tow one another to top of the slope. An easy way of deploying the elements and appearance – disappearance of this network can become a part of the forest area, along with the old direction marks and other artificial remnants.
