AN EMBEDDED COMPASS
The junction of Rambla de Marina with the railway track and Gran Via becomes a place of high intensity. The project reveals this situation and draws, from this specific point, two great avenues that become real links between different metropolitan districts. Those two new curve-shaped guidelines shows how new metropolitan elements can still be imagined on this area.
Gran Via is lifted and converted into aa viaduct, thus becoming an artefact which is both infrastructure and architecture. This important street is divided into two separate levels: a more fast and metropolitan way at the top and new local services and facilities underneath.
