Brief description of the project:

Adding Focuses. The urban continuity of la Diagonal can be investigated through, not only a longitudinal structure, but also as an intense intervention in specific areas. This project works on creating two main focuses, born from two important crossroads, and extending and developing a whole area with the aim of transforming a border into hinge. These two new kneecaps develop a structure of varying different scale,s achieving a system organized as a crossroad that consists of crossroads, simultaneously transforming a nowhere land into a focus of activity.
