One of the aims of this workshop [ROJO PAQUIMÉ] is to experiment with the impact of red colour on an historical landscape. In comparison to imitative and permanent techniques, we use chromatic contrast, material recycling and use planning as an alternative toolkit to perform in patrimonial areas. The intervention considers two scales: It is a huge sign (3 meters tall and 24 meters long) that provides the delocalized entrance to the archaeological site with representativeness, and it is also a collection of characters that can be individually pieced to kit out the place with new uses: P can be transformed into stilts to be used as mobile viewpoints, A is a cart to sort out the problem of accessibility to persons with restricted mobility, Q can be transformed into an artificial tree to shade a small area, U is a pair of observation towers that offer different views over the site, I is a backpack prototype that can be used as portable shadow, M is an universal Do It Yourself system for urban fitment construction and E is a portable museum with information of the archaeological site
