The study- case of the Barranco de Badajoz de Güímar, is an opportunity to compare, in an international seminar between seventeenEuropean universities, various hypotheses of landscape transformation through architecture and engineering works in the area. The proposal of the search group Trento 2 tends to build a scenery for the Badajoz Valley where several alternative uses could be possible during the extraction period, from the beginning of the new programmed phase of excavation to its conclusion. In fact, there is a little realist in appearance project of morphology and of destiny use rigidly established by a temporal arch almost so long as the fifty years anticipated for the fulfilment of the extractive activity. Starting from these assumptions, the exploitation of the extraction of the Güimar valley can be seen not as an evil that needs to be mitigated but as a precious possibility in a geographically limited territory like an island is, to enhance such a resource. .The project we are presenting recognises this value and can, in this sense, be considered as an infrastructure project. At the end of each extraction phase, an episode of the process must be fulfilled. It will make the inner part of the area profitable for a range of activities compatible with the developmental objectives of the island which, in time, will be improved or modified. General Objectives and Intervention Strategies 1 - To perform a morphological and functionality continuity between Güimar’s ravines zone and the diverse geomorphologic and landscape ambits respectively: from the mount to the valley, extraction area 2 - The fulfilment of plain strips in the intermediate area (excavation area nº 2 of the Extraction Plan) available for diverse activities: agriculture, sportive and leisure activities, rest stops for excursionists and other also productive functions compatible with the quality of the landscape. 3 - The proposal of hydrogeological security of the territory as regards the risk of flooding, by means of the re-establishment, according to controlled plotting, of the streams of both ravines (of the Ladera / Slope and of the Piedra Gorda/ Fat Stone with the Fregenal and the Badajoz) with the service streets for their maintenance and new mouths to the sea. 4 - The recovery of the main quarries as memory for a possible industrial archaeology but also as value of tourist use for excursions, making them accessible and safe. In particular, keeping and consolidating the deepest part of the current quarries. 5 - The arrangement of the sea zone, of the coastal line the boundary of the highway and included between the two new riverbeds, with the creation of new facilities for tourist and nautical activities in the little port of Güimar. 6 – The new viaduct of the TF-1 The choice to make a viaduct suspended by theTF-1 highway is a strategy for a twofold continuity – of travelling and visual – that is intended in both directions. Besides the importance of the coastal links, it is vital to have during the journey a perception of the landscape of the valley as a continuous system which develops from the oceanic coast climbing until it disappears from sight and mingles with the slopes of the Teide. Out of this new landscape the bridge represents a key element, not a superimposed figure on the landscape. But it is modelled enough together with the ground and with the same principles of a geologic force that raises different layers of the terrain, that bends, curving them; it shapes them redoubling their edges until it becomes a close tubular section, a continuously variable figure.
