Centro Abierto de Actividades Ciudananas by ParedesPino, naive urban architecture

The Centro Abierto de Actividades Ciudananas in Cordoba is a colorful subdivision of our world.  From a vast barren space by the railway station, it has been updated by ParedesPino architects to a focus of interest of the city itself.


A garden of slabs and prefabricates, with a deceiving sense of scale, the place is designed to make you smile. The huge parasols shield against weather, providing a fantastic venue for fairs, temporary markets and other activities.  Like huge artificial water lilies hovering over  the surface of the square, the prefabricated elements of various heights and diameters have artificial lighting incorporated, as well as water drainage. Centro Abierto de Actividades Ciudananas , a pastel colored urban forest during the day, creates a fabulous spectacle at night, a dazzling interplay of shadows and bright reflections, a collage of contemporary impressionism.
