WRP | UVA Orfelinato PROJECT. WATER RESERVOIR PARKS PROJECT. UVA (UNIDAD DE VIDA ARTICULADA) What are Water Reservoirs? They are fundamental elements of a water supply system that balance the flow in demand, adapting their size to the population’s use. Their main feature, aside of being part of the public domain, is their strategic location in order to supply a bast extent. They could either be built underground, elevated or above surface. Each tank supplies 130,540 people on average, reaching various areas of the region. What are WRP (Water Reservoirs Parks) / UVA (Unidad de Vida Articulada)? They are public buildings situated on Potable Water Reservoirs of Medellin designed to be urban catalysts for change by encouraging citizen encounter with technology, recreation, sports and culture facilities. The WRP articulate the urban tissue with facilities that adapt their program to the local needs, thereby emerging as district landmarks. This program shifts closed property into public space, establishing a collective space for new opportunities and social inclusion.
