OPTIMIZATION OF PUBLIC SPACE (LORANCA)

OPTIMIZATION OF PUBLIC SPACE

LORANCA (ES)

Client: Municipality of Fuenlabrada
Date: 2008
Status: Preliminary design
Program: Urban Strategy for optimizing public spaces of Loranca’s district and improving connections between different parts of the neighborhood.
Scope: Urban strategy, design

Urban revitalization project for the public space network in Loranca’s District.

A widespread intervention is set on the urban fabric of the entire district as a series of linked interventions that grow proportionally to a growing budget availability.

The intervention is conceived as an ‘Acupuncture’ strategy, resulting in generating activity in the affected public spaces, associated with four key concepts:

1. CONTINUOUS PUBLIC SPACE

2. CITY AS A PLAYGROUND

3. ECOLOGICAL RESETTING

4. URBAN CATALYSTS

In addition to these actions, a series of communication and participation campaigns and creative workshops will be held to raise public awareness and interest.
