2A + P Architettura [Giafranco Bombaci, Domenico Cannistraci, Pietro Chiodi, Matteo Constanzo, Valerio Franzone]
The inauguration of the Can Bertran garden took place on June 13, 2007. The project had begun in mid 2005, during IDENSITAT 05, when the 2A+P collective started a series of work sessions in the Centro Recreativo of the elderly, in order to recuperate a green area of the village.
2A+P`s project initially sought to propose urban development mechanisms that would be closely related to the physical space, thus intertwining the natural and social structures. The project intended to generate urban ecology systems. This process was materialized in the construction of a garden, in a lot that was handed over by its owner to the municipality, on condition that its use would be intended for the elderly of the village, Can Bertran.
After defining the location, the collective carried out a collaboration process with the Casal de la Gente Mayor, in order to design and draw the plans of the garden. 2A+P also collaborated with the council of Urbanismo del Ayuntamiento de Calaf, during the construction of the project. Moreover, for the future management of the garden, 2A+P created a collaboration bridge between the collective of the elderly and the municipality.
