"The project seeks to reveal all the heritage present in the territory of Roquetas de mar in order to give it an important place in the project “second life” To get this target, we propose an extended definition of patrimony that allows to highlight different existing elements such as heritage, local materials, daily practices, Poniente’s landscape, etc. Then we introduced those patrimonials elements in order to develop a city that can evolve and adapt itself according to the economic, demographic or ecological pressures that the territory has to face."
