The old Convent of Santa Maria de los Reyes is located within a
built-up block in the historic centre of Seville. It was abandoned
and in a state of semi-ruin, except for the church, choirs and
entry porch, which were used regularly for exhibitions and
workshops. The old convent vegetable gardens had been converted
into a large “vacant lot” concealed behind the walls of the old
convent, waiting to be built on or rediscovered.
Due to the decrepit state of the historical complex (cloister, cells, rectory and old vegetable gardens) an urgent intervention was required. Given the scarcity of available funding and taking into account the requirements of the new urban partners in the historic centre, it was decided to make installed consolidations; with new paths, consolidating urban practices and pre-inhabiting mechanisms for art installations.
