The Roc planter is an urban element with a shape and geometry which can limit different outdoor public spaces. Its structure and size allow you to develop multiple functions ranging from the planter itself into a seat, a mark or boundary element, offering a wide range of versatility.
Its repetition and rotation allow you to create an element like "Trencadís' becoming a fragmented patchwork appearance so characteristic of Catalan modernism architecture. In the night scenes, the piece can light projecting down its geometry giving the feeling of buoyancy and defining public space making it an outdoor area safer for the user.
The ROC planter is a tribute to the Catalan modernist architecture using the 'Trencadís' as a base for its design. Their three-dimensional surfaces are used as a fragmented mosaic making each piece has a distinct geometry depending on their spatial positioning.
The ROC planter is designed to be built with reinforced concrete, but will be studied in the near future, versions with rubber and wood to analyze its behavior. Its size and design allow the planter to accommodate multiple functions (bench mark, gardener, etc.).
The amount of these objects creates a play of light and shadow that adds to the urban areas a great personality, where lighting is used beyond being a conventional lighting solution in making this piece a functional element that limits, separate and define spaces.
