M3PROJECT AWARDED FOR THE DESIGN OF QUITO’S NEW CENTRAL URBAN PARK
EMERGING LANDSCAPE MOSAIC
As part of the Parque del Lago International Design Competition, the M3PROJECT proposal was awarded as a finalist for the design of Quito’s new central urban park. The proposal sets out to transform what is now Quito’s International Airport into a new type of urban-nature. By crafting the park’s terrain and hydrological networks, an array of interconnected waterways set the framework for the growth of the park over time. The hydrological foundation establishes key ecological links between the terrestrial and aquatic habitats encouraging an emergence of an eco-urban mosaic within the center of Quito’s vibrant culture.
