We did not want to limit ourselves to provide a biased view of the palm. We decided to look at his feet and hands and send to hell the point of view. We also, with a single viewpoint, which add value to two elements: the palm, and the city of Elche. Our proposal is extends  over the city, restoring buildings to do this and offering unique viewpoints on the surface that appear as high on the road, and as the main viewpoint, a symbolic element that catalyse the appreciation of the palm and the city. It is a public space. For its strategic location between the palm and the old city, and the large number of public uses that are scattered and disjointed in its environment, all the area and the current adjacent parking is proposed as a large public space that will become the hall of Elche and welcome visitors, which iincorporates the new construction, designed for public space and also to look.
