Río Park in Madrid is located in the centre of the Spanish capital and offers a recreational area for everyone living in Madrid. This pedestrianised area was built after the western arc of the M-30 ring-road was put underground between 2006 and 2011. It now represents a meeting point between various iconic parts of the city, such as the Arganzuela Park or the La Latina district.
The Compact model from the Airfal catalogue was used when building this park; a high-quality luminaire with a great ingress protection rating. It also has an IK10 rating - the highest possible impact protection rating applicable to luminaires. Its small size offers a wide range of possibilities whilst maintaining an excellent IP67 dust and water resistance rating.
The project was presented with the Verónica Rudge Award by Harvard University in 2015 for its social and cultural impact, as well as its design.
