Girona City Council
The intervention is the sum of seven attitudes and intentions in a public space in the old town of Girona. The first one, recognize and respect the topography and place conditionants. The second one, unify all square parts with the creation of a large longitudinal space, offering a bigger dimension. The third one, propose a grandstand as an exceptional solution to face the topography change between the square and the street. The fourth one, integrate the materials and finishes of the new square in the neighborhood of the old town. Fifth, improve the accessibility of the surroundings for both pedestrians and traffic. Sixth, plant the maximum number of green elements that allow the surrounding conditions, creating a major proximity with the nature and citizen. Seventh, resolve the relationship between urban gaps, building bottoms and municipal building courtyard.
