22@ smart city cristobal de moura district \ barcelona, spain \\ spring 2013
The investigation of Barcelona began by mapping historical traces of industry and agriculture as an underlying grid contrary to the Cerda development. The neighborhood of Poblenou is examined by mapping patterns within the city of linear networks, passages, and developments that follow horizontal and vertical organization. Surrounding blocks have tendencies to follow linear framework, such as the Llacuna Axis development (a vertical development), and a recent (horizontally inclined) housing development just south of our site. These lines of development are pulled into our site toward an existing vertical opening, creating a central green axis, or spine. These lines start to determine the organization of building development within the blocks.
