IN THE SHADOW OF SAGRADA FAMÍLIA
From Jaussely’s Plan (1903) until General Metropolitan Plan (1976), Barcelona has been planning different ways to give more visibility to Sagrada Família from the main streets of that area: Diagonal Avenue and Marina St.
For the last three decades, the construction of the final Sagrada Família has been affecting the existing houses right to the south of the building. But the level of consolidation of the existing building difficult makes difficult its demolition.
This proposal presents a softer intervention, by setting up a new composition of empty spaces that arrives until Diagonal Avenue, without giving up the idea of a frontala route and cross views that interested Gaudií already at its origin.
