URBAN PROPOSAL FOR THE CITY- PORT INTERFACE
The Barcelona City-Port interface is under continue transformation. The limit between the urban port and the industrial logistic area is under movement and is being continually displaced south, opposite to urban positions, in search for areas where to minimize conflict between urban and port activities. At the same time, physically constrained the city of Barcelona is in search for space to provide houses to new comers.
This proposal link port and urban interest through the creation of a continue slab that facilities logistic activities under while permits urban activities above, provide space to enlarge today’s straitjacketed transport infrastructures and solve the link between the city and the bigger park in town, Montjuïc.

A URBAN REGENERATION STUDY OF THE NEIGHBORING HARBOUR AREA IN LAS PALMAS DE GAN CANARIA
La Isleta was developed during the 20th century as a consequence of the expansion of Puerto de la Luz, one of Spain’s biggest ports. First populated by people from the interior of the island who came to the city in search of a better life, the neighbourhood was subsequently modified due to the real estate market and the port transport infrastructures, affecting its original shape and accommodating new waves of migrants to the island. However, despite these changes, social connections in La Isleta remain strong and neighbours have a proud sense of ownership.
This study found, among other aspects, that patio houses from the first phases of development are at risk of disappearing and should be listed and protected as they may be adapted to city changes and commercial needs and at the same time positively condition the street section and public activity.
