Itinerari Accesible La Pletera_Catalunya_Spain_2022
This project aims to bring people closer to the unique ecosystem of the Pletera Itinerary through sensory discoveries with a collection of artistic and functional, sustainable and handcrafted pieces made with solid wood and vegetable fibers.
These elements are uniquely designed especially for this territory and the inspiration comes from the environment itself.
The project follows the philosophy of Universal Design, which is realized for everybody regardless of people abilities or disabilities.
The aim is to encourage the improvement of our community values and promote a more respectful relationship with nature, through an innovative and creative proposal that combines nature, art and communication.
Collection OXIGEN by Domestic-Wild for La Pletera:
Inspired by this wild landscape, which very well hides a domestication, shaked by the wind that combs a flexible and ethereal vegetation that dances and splashes, eroded by the sun and the sea breeze that rounds the stones and the sea wood. A landscape that hosts a tiny fauna with a more timid presence than that of the birds that visit and nest in it, Domestic-Wild has designed these 12 elements that now contribute to making the Itinerary of the Pletera more accessible. These pieces are handcrafted by Domestic-Wild with local solid oak and cedar wood, combined with wicker plant structures handcrafted by Tramats.cat a couple of artisans based in Torroella de Montgrí.
The Itinerary of La Pletera:
La Pletera Itinerary, or “La ruta a la Gola del Ter”, starts in front of the Estartit Tourist Officefollowing the promenade heading south. After the Parc de la Pineda we follow a sandy path parallel to the coast until we come to the urbanized area of Els Griells, where we turn off to get to know the river Ter Vell. We can enjoy here the lagoons of the river Ter Vell from the observatory.
Here we continue walking between Les Closes, meadows closed by trees, with tamarix-trees on both sides of the road to reach La Pletera, marsh separated from the sea by a cordon of wildcoastal dunes and following the route in a southerly direction and parallel to Estartit beach along a wide sandy path flanked by tamarix-trees on the right side.
At this side we find some of the pieces conceived, such as an interpretation with textures of the plan of the area or an auditory sculpture that immerse us in the murmur of the sea and the wind and a sheltered seat from which to observe the birds and the landscape.
Following the path, we arrive at La Bassa de Fra Ramon, where we find two pieces where we can rest inthe Bird Observatory which is made of wicker. We leave LaBassa de Fra Ramon and walk now through an area of fixed dunes with bushy vegetation, where we can discover 2 sensory pieces of cedar wood in the dune regeneration area. Further on we get back to the speck of the river Ter,
where two solid oak benches covered with wicker are waiting for us to rest and contemplate the place of La Gola del Ter .
