Oasi becomes a system that rediscovers the spirit of fluvial dynamics, providing new uses and functions in public space that guarantee the resilience of the urban patterns and the ecological connectivity of the territory. The perception and collective imaginary are renewed with a fluvial space of reencounter with nature. We aim to strengthen and dignify the identity of a place that has lost its roots. Our methodology sets the territorial dynamics of the site as a starting point, where is expected that the phenomenology will evolve naturally to a fluvial ecosystem over time.

Oasi is the renaturalization of a strongly transformed area caused by the patrimonial past, which allows us to approach the river through the strategy of topographic forms that concern floods and the plantation of autochthonous species. A real landscape transformation with natural logic that enables fluvial resilience of the territory along time.

The collective is conformed by four architects who materialized their final project for the master's degree in architecture of the Vallès School of Architecture. As students, we sum up our personal values to a common manifesto that was nurtured by a transversal process that brought together complementary disciplines for the complex intervention in the fluvial environment. OASI was designed as a real order, with a real client and in real-time: from the initial phase to the final construction.
