Gorg / Joan Fossas

Joan Fossas / ESDAP Catalunya / Campus Vic

Everyone has the need to escape from the routine and seek a kind of freedom. Unfortunately nowadays the natural environment is paying a huge price to meet all these desires. Gorg is a signage project which seeks to improve the tourist experience in the natural environment by promoting the good use of space.

The Torrent de la Cabana, located in the village of Campdevànol (Ripollès, Girona), has reached its limits. Due to the abrupt and unforeseen widespread growth, the human impact has left deep scars both in the environmental level and also in the social sphere.

Before develping this project, a diagnosis of the current state of the area has been carried out in order to analyze three key points: the space, the social environment and the emotional bond that the residents have historically maintained with this area. The study has resulted in the creation of a signage system that must be applied in order to safeguard the conservation of this natural space.
