AMONG CLOVERLEAVES

AMONG CLOVERLEAVES

At this site the shape of the junction become a complex topic. Even though its design is set by engineering criteria some exercise imagine that this particular shape can be kept and become the main focus of the new ordination.

Interstitial spaces can become public spaces if we add walkways and tunnels connecting both sides of Diagonal Avenue and taking advantage of topographic discontinuities by adding new volumes and programs. Not to erase but to add.

LA RONDA DE COLLSEROLA

LA RONDA DE COLLSEROLA

hierarchy of the two connections isn’t analog when crossing the junction. If we accept the pacification of Diagonal Avenue to that point we can read the junction as Y-shaped and give priority to the continuity between B-23 and Ronda de Dalt.
With this strategy new opportunity spaces arise where the exercise proposes a great stadium and landmark buildings along with an intermodal hub.

HOW TO DECOMPOSE CAUFEC


HOW TO DECOMPOSE CAUFEC
Pla Caufec’s uncertainties become a project strategy. The space that was occupied once by high voltage lines now aims to become a connection to Collblanc St. That trace has a great connecting potential at the two Diagonal Avenue sides and also matches with the territory’s topography.
With the existing Plan still under development but the already built streets the building density is concentrated close to the city with the aim of releasing urban density at the base of the mountain. Different strategies for the Diagonal’s junction arise always taking the goal to link back Sant Joan de Déu’s Hospital with the Avenue.

ADDING FOCUS

ADDING FOCUS

This exercise imagines continuity in a less literal way. It doesn’t seek a continuous longitudinal ordination but an intense intervention at specific spots. High-speed connections are open at a wide territory at the same time that organizes it with new facilities. Detects the importance of a missing junction between B-23 and the old road that linked Barcelona with Madrid and articulates a wider order between the two Avenue sides by reinforcing its traces imagining new uses and volumes.

TO SANT JOAN DESPÍ

TO SANT JOAN DESPÍ

This proposal articulates a new Avenue to St. Joan Despí at the main highway space. The different relations between the Highway and its built surroundings are analyzed and with a systematic strategy a new organization is proposed that provides continuity to its sides, providing sidewalks, tramways and green spaces.
The open section of the Avenue allows to propose platforms where parks and facilities can be located, following the example of Ronda de Dalt. Some punctual interventions intensify the urban fabric and the tissues that form the new façade.

ON EITHER SIDE

ON EITHER SIDE

Diagonal Avenue becomes a highway after its last traffic light, beside the RACC’s building. How could we extend its urban continuity?

The north side could continue through Sant Joan de Déu’s Hospital after crossing Cervantes Park reverting its current eccentric position. At the southern side, another arm can connect with the sports area with a straight trace that could be parallel to Ronda de Dalt improving the connection with Collblanc streets.

A JUNCTION AS AN INTERCHANGE

A JUNCTION AS AN INTERCHANGE

The two-level junction of Diagonal Avenue with Ronda de Dalt is multiplied with the aim of proposing a great hub at that same spot. The already planned coach terminal is placed here and also an elongation of the L3 Metro Line.
The expressivity of infrastructural traces become the main element at this case. Superposition is manifested both underground and externally with new volumes located beside big surfaces serving Barcelona’s mobility: halls, parking and squares.

THE FIRST FACADES

EL PRIMER TRAM DE FAÇANES

El projecte condensa totes les accions al tram entre el nus viari i l’Avinguda dels Països Catalans d’Esplugues. La Diagonal estira la seva urbanitat fins allí gràcies a la solució elevada de les connexions entre Ronda de Dalt i la B-23 i aconsegueix així l’acumulació de nous programes metropolitans i de barri a peu de carrer. La secció de l’avinguda pren gruix amb els nous volums i usos que l’acompanyen.
A escala del projecte urbà s’assagen múltiples variacions volumètriques a la façana de la Diagonal, que busquen establir un nou ordre articulant alhora els antics darreres. L’espai es densifica situant un nou intercanviador (amb autobusos urbans i interurbans, metro, taxi i bicicletes) que identifica la posició estratègica de l’enllaç.

FIRST SECTION WITH FACADES

FIRST SECTION WITH FACADES

The project condensates all the actions at the sector between Països Catalans Avenue and the road junction. Diagonal’s urbanity is elongated through there due to the elevation of Ronda de Dalt’s connections with B-23. New volumes and uses accumulate metropolitan and local programs connected with the street level.
Different volumetric variations are tested trying to establish a new order and at the same time articulate the existing backyards. The urban space is intensified by the introduction of a new modal station of urban and inter-urban bus, metro, taxi and bicycle.
