The solution of the project respond to the presented requirements in the competition rules and the existing requirements in the development of the works of the Flamenco Museum, which occupy the structure of the old Market Square Merced. The location proposed by the competition consist of acess to Merced square from Teniente Andújar street through a pedestrian stairway that saved a total slope of 3’40 m downstream to the old Market which is today the subject of a rehabilitation that it will become the Flamenco Museum.
The proposal to improve the site of the works carried out there is based on a tubular structure of galvanized steel frames, which is taken from prefabricated scaffolding systems, covered with perforated sheet platforms also galvanized steel and pine wood boards. The resulting construction, with non-permanent character, is a sort of tunnel or passage that protects pedestrians from the detachment of dust and crane fragments which come from existing work and it takes the stairs to improvise a screening room on the street. The overall dimensions of this structure are 12 metres long and 3,50 metres wide and a height ranging between 2’00 m at baseline and 5’40 m down the stairs.
The passage lighting is solved with an emergency lighting system to delimit the lighting used by the ancient theaters and old theaters. The projection system composed of a computer, a projector and a speaker system that hide to the bystander. This should show to residents the deep transformation taking place in their neighborhood today and, therefore, the change that will happen in a short space of time in the site.
