I had hoped this humble piece of landscaping would offset the macho structures just inland and show how female architects can outshine by taking a different tack but despite some subtley dynamic concrete seats that unfold out of a concrete wall most of the decking is thin gruel for the brain. A series of pontoons reach into a thin stretch of water protected from the Mediterranean by a riot of huge concrete blocks, with a skeletal spine marking a boundary with the Auditoria Park just inland.
