PARC DEL NORD URBAN UPGRADING COMPETITION IN SABADELL

DESCRIPTION: Our entry got the second position in this competition for the design of the North Park urban upgrading in the city of Sabadell (Spain). It was characterized by the rethinking of the infrastructures in a way that it gave priority to pedestrians and bikes in front of private vehicles. It also proposed a new network of secondary roads that reinforced the relationship between the city and its park. A reorganization of its water resources as well as a new layout for the flora —and therefore the fauna— were key points not only at a city level but also at a urban ecosystem level.

TEAM: EFA Arquitectes, Jason Portell, Xavier Peradalta and Leire Garaicoetxea Architects, and ALFA POLARIS.

CLIENT: Sabadell City Council

DATES: 2017 - 2018
