A promenade with Jansana, de la Villa, de Paauw

15-L. Films

Meandering through landscape design strategies and details.

This short film by Barcelona based audiovisual production company 15-L. Films is like a walk through a series of works by landscape design studio Jansana, De La Villa, De Paauw Architects in the areas inside and outside Barcelona. The narration is organized according to a series of keywords - "landscape architecture, urban design, town planning, building, interior design, rehabilitation" - that identify different kinds of interventions at different scales and in different contexts, from the more dense environments of urban parks and bicycle and pedestrian paths (El Prat de Lobregat, Barcelona), to the quieter and more natural landscapes of the interventions at the Llobregat River Deviation.

All the projects - seafront and fluvial promenades, wetlands, gardens, even a quarry rehabilitation and a collaboration with the artist Perejaume for incorporating artwork in landscape - are inspired and influenced by a common approach. The aim is that of enhancing existing flora, native elements and sustainable gardens, integrating with the surrounding areas and offering pleasant transitions between urban and natural spaces. In this video-portfolio, all design interventions are explored through a sequence of live-footage frames in order to allow the viewers to experience them even from a distance. The camera focuses on the details, while the real sounds of the environments are used as a background for almost the entire narration.

The video ends with a focus on the restoration of the peaks of Turo de la Rovira (European Prize for Urban Public Space 2012), an intervention where the past of the city is used as a generator. Turo de la Rovira was the subject also for another documentary directed and produced by Carlota Coloma and Adrià Lahuerta (15L Films ): "La Intervenció Invisible".
