Inhabited milieu's challenges
Do you want to contribute to the reflection on what the city of the 21st century should be like?
El Prat de Llobregat opens up the possibility of intervening in its imminent extension. The aim is to work towards the creation of a new city where, foreseeably, a large number of citizens who cannot afford to live in urban centres will move to live. For more than a decade, this site has been inactive due to the economic situation. Today, the project is being taken up again, in a clearly different scenario that requires a reconsideration of the model of new urban developments, with a focus on measures to reduce energy consumption and production.
Its location at the interface between the agricultural park and the urban centre of El Prat de Llobregat makes it a place with unique potential. The site has an excellent communications network, including a completed metro station that is awaiting new inhabitants.
We are waiting for your proposals to update and specify renewable energy measures, adjustments in the planning by defining building elements, urban planning, mobility, green areas, urban furniture.... articulating the public space and open areas with the private building.
The winning team will materialise the proposed building typology in an area in the south of El Prat de Llobregat, as the development of the Eixample Nord is expected to take 20 years.
