City of Dogs
In a city with high density of population, the number of dogs has
also increased to the current situation: we have more dogs than
kids below 12 years old in our neighbourhood.
We are settled at the north slope of Montjuïc, main destination for pet owners. Our neighbourhood, even belonging to the city centre has been left behind. In a so-called accessible city, walkways are uneven and with inaccessible curbs. Narrow streets and few tiny squares show up,
day after day, covered with uncollected poops.
Meet Roque, 2 years old, on his way to the kindergarten.
Would he reach it? Would he find a safe clean path?
Will the city belong to dogs? To pet owners? To citizens?
Or how could all together cohabit?
