URBAN BOX STRATEGY

MADRID (ES)

Client: EMVS
Date: 2009
Status: Commission.
Program: Intervention program and revitalize vacant lot.
Scope: Director of the experimental design and work.

This project aims to give new life to residual spaces in urban centers and especially in the city centre of Madrid.

We consider it of particular interest to propose joint solutions to share uses in the wasted spaces of the city. Through small-scale interventions we can update and reprogram empty lots to be used during the time between the demolition of a building and the construction of a new one, which may take many years. What at first might be seen as a problem becomes an opportunity for creative and innovative solutions to revitalize the urban and social fabric.
