Student competition – Arch Medium – "BCN 2009: Urban Sustainable Transport Center"

Goals

The goal of this assignment is to achieve an architectural ensemble that responds to the multiple scales that these kind of projects require. The project to develop must not only attend to the specific function it’s designed for but also to its urban insertion and impact.

Location

Because of the hundred and fiftieth anniversary of Cerdà’s master plan for the expansion of Barcelona the project takes place on a site located in a consolidated sector of this rectangular grid that is considered one of the first examples of modern urbanism. As many of the master plans that followed after Cerda’s the expansion is based on a rectangular abstract grid that is only interrupted by important avenues, topography or landmark buildings.

This particular site belongs to this grid, but it becomes a very significant part of it, since it’s located at a point where one of the regular streets of the mesh touches one of the few diagonals and therefore becomes one of the very few triangular plots of the master plan with an area of 3.300 square meters.
