dc.description.abstract Between 195 and 198 the medieval core of Valencia lost 67. of its population, a precipitous decline from 1, to 3, people in 3 years. This period roughly coincides with the period of dictatorship under Franco. As part of a much larger program for the recovery and rehabilitation of Valencia, initiated in 198 by a new city government, this proposal explores the idea of transforming the old and neglected Jardin Botanico into a monument. As a monument it is intended to serve as a marker of cultural identity by preserving its form as a ancient garden, its characteristic irrigation pattern, and highlighting its presence in the city by flanking it with related high profile institutions. This transformation symbolizes the presence of a new direction and marks a significant change in Spanish history and is intended to serve as a collective memory of the city’s origin and past as an agricultural center and as an indication of its future direction.
