ON THE FRONT

fourth year | fall '18

studio abroad in Barcelona - project in partnership with Lillian Nguyen

Zona Franca can begin its development into a grand urban project right away. Mapping of this industrialized region full of warehouses, right on the outskirts of Barcelona, revealed an opportunity for areas of development to begin in the interstitial space between major circulation and building facade. This space is ideal because it looks at a scale better suited for housing people and can begins its immediate construction; eventually it can latch on to original buildings to further progress its development.

 

A greater urban vision derived from this housing strategy can create a connected ‘green belt’, connecting these available warehouse spaces to begin forming neighborhoods. The freedom for people to come and progress and create what they inhabitant will encourage future youths and creatives of Europe to explore and expand Zona Franca - there is no limitation for who can make their home here.
