Text by Helena Casanova: Eight round and deep blocks, 3-4 levels high, with a collective courtyard in the middle are located in the middle of an open urban structure filled-in with open-air activities in the public space. The parking area is half below street level and follows a central axis below public spaces and blocks. The typologies are not developed in detail. The blocks are very deep, thus being able to contain two rows of housing, one open to the exterior of the ring and the other open towards inside.
