AV. CARLES BUIGAS BLUE PRINT
THE PUBLIC SPACE AND THE COMMERCE
THIRD DOCUMENT: PROPOSAL PROJECT FOR THE AV. CARLES BUIGAS
A proposal was developed to give priority to pedestrians. Thus, vehicles are only able to access if they are delivery vehicles, first-aiders or neighbours accessing parking lots. The section of the street is uniform and continuous. The axis is located 11m from the south building façade and 19 from the north building façade.
From the 8m that shops irregularly took from the building plots, 4m were kept and 4 removed. Through this strategy, the street can be widened by 8m and shop fronts renovated and unified, improving their conditions and image. At the same time, to foster a temporary occupation of the street, a new structure was added in the centre of the section to provide shade and infrastructure support for commercial activities.
