Badajoz, the capital of the Province of Badajoz, Spain, is situated close to the Portuguese border on the left bank of the river Guadiana.

Utilizing humus earth and a limestone layer, green areas concentrated into islands of different sizes and scattered all over the roof. The open space design in the rural park and in the urban car park is connected with the riverbank; the garden design in the semi-public cultural building base extends across five courtyard patios of different uses including as a cultural center, kindergarten, gymnasium, housing, and garage, and the extensive greenroof design is related to private open space for the 83 m high, 16-floor office tower. Geometric forms include circles, ovoids, and straight lines such as nodes where lines of infrastructure converge and where activities concentrate. Islands are cool spots inside the hot areas and are spread out. […]
