De-espacio is a proposal based on the disappearance of Los Caídos (The Fallen) as the driving force behind the process of redefining the urban environment surrounding this monument. The transformation will establish a new image and significance for this highly central spot in Pamplona, a meeting point between the historic city centre and new developments to the south. The proposal is to selectively dismantle the monument, mausoleum and arcades, and progressively replace them with a large tree-lined park, a boulevard that highlights the symbolic value of the public space gained for the city. It is a proposal that deals with space as a fundamental urban value and with slow methods (de-espacio) for it to evolve towards new scenarios. In this first phase, the task is to establish guidelines to support the process of transforming urban space. The people will then get to vote on these guidelines in the citizen participation consultation planned between the two phases. The proposal features three groups of actions (dismantling, planting, paving), carried out simultaneously, to guide the evolution of the whole.
