Metro de Málaga, Spain, (2003)
The project series documents Abalos & Herreros’ competition entry organised by the Cabinet of Andalucia for the underground in Málaga, Spain. The firm identified this project as number 172.
“The stations are the masterpieces of the interaction between the peasant and the new infrastructure. […] A diversity of additive materials – combinations opaque or luminous, translucent or transparent, vegetal or aerial – make of [Abalos & Herreros’] proposal an elaborate sting operation that can adaptate [sic] to every imaginable circumstances looking for an agreement of highest coincidence between underground stations and the surface. The building and finishing coincidence between underground stations and the surface. The building and finishing system not only pretends [sic] an unitary image for all the underground web, but also constitutes itself an orientation code, an indicator for movement, a locator of accesses and a resource of orientation in town.” (ARCH270975).
The firm worked with Mike Schlaich and Schlaich Bergermann und Partner (Stuttgart).
Documenting the project are conceptual drawings, correspondence, specifications, cartographic and digital materials.
