RESETTING OF AN INDUSTRIAL AREA

AVILÉS (ES)

Client: Arcelor Mittal
Date: 2008-2009
Status: Commission
Program: Urban strategy for imagining the future of the industrial zone, the improvement of green areas and the implementation of a new technology center.
Scope: Director of the strategic plan.

Environmental urban renewal plan for a coal processing facility, located in a strategic area of the bank, near Avilés.
The project is divided in two phases. The first is to create a green corridor, both on the perimeter and inside the enclosure, reorganizing the interior spaces and proposing several interventions by adapting the external image of the industrial zone.
The second phase will start once the initial facilities get dismantled. This phase consists on creating a river park linked to the area and the reconfiguration of the historic industrial building into a new technology research centre.
