URBAN DRAFT FOR THE BLANES SEA PROMENADE

Blanes / 1994-1995

 

The project is about the urbanization of the top part of 400 m of seafront above an underground parking lot. The parking spots prevented to place any kind of green landscaping. An open clean longitudinal space of around 20 m wide without any obstacles was also a request, in order to celebrate the weekly marketplace. The solution is a clear promenade section, continuous and direct in all its path that could create order in a chaotic sector. The idea had a will of abstraction, the construction of an artificial frame that supplement the natural space of the beach with a simple pavement and a wooden pergola that separates the seafront from the buildings alongside the promenade.
