Text by Helena Casanova: An abstract grid of 44 distinct areas, 25 x 25 m square 'islands', forms the basic urban scale layout throughout the whole study area. The outer appearance of the intervention is based on 4 m high blind walls towards the neighborhood. The ground level is entirely dedicated to parking space accessed through 'hidden' entrances within the site. Some stairs lead to the platforms, 4 m high, where the housing and the green areas are placed. The structure slab is designed to contain trees and plants. Each platform is surrounded by a 3 m high wall, enclosing patios and buildings. The buildings are situated on top of the platform. The typologies are not defined.
