Applying a generator matrix. Slab system and planting

A composite system based on repeated elements can be used to implement large scale interventions. This economy of resources simplifies the actions on complex contexts and allows spaces to be clearly unified. Applying generator matrices entails the seriation of building systems and components with the subsequent cost reduction.

The pre-fabricated concrete slabs serve to organize the grooved surface of the park. The gradual decrease in their width until they become bases for plants shapes a surface area which removes the border between paths and gardens.
