Abstract

The Plan for the Integration of the Vertical Plan to the Urban Landscape describes the design proposals made for the improvement of the vertical plan of the public space of Bon Pastor, a Barcelona neighborhood that belongs to the District of Sant Andreu, bordering the Besòs River. From the vertical plane, we will focus on the cases of the dividing wall and the wall, specifically on those deficient surfaces of urban design quality in visual, thermo-acoustic, energy, environmental and sustainability terms.


However, with the intention of carrying out a process of integral design of the space, the solutions contemplate interventions in the rest of the envelope; in this way, for the improvement of the medians, the intervention in the façade becomes imperative, and in the case of the walls, the reformulation of the adjoining space. All this leads us to three axes of juxtaposed interventions to solve the same problem, for which we have deepened in the referents of treatment of vertical plane and other analogous models in the context of the city of Barcelona.


A first action will be the elaboration of the Plan of Color of Bon Pastor that affects the entire envelope of the building, exemplified by the dividing walls of the Felix Rodríguez de la Fuente square, the facades and medians of the buildings of the street of Mare Eterna and the facades of the housing estates of Lima Street. A second axis will involve the sustainable intervention of the La Colmena building, carried out by the architect Oriol Bohigas, as well as the surrounding housing estates, introducing the top plane of the public space through the green roof. Finally, a third exercise will include the reformulation of the persistent unresolved voids, which enhance the visual impact of the walls and medians to which they adjoin. This section will be developed through the generation of a ride in the current parking lot of Lima Street, the promotion of temporary uses in empty lots -proposed in the exercise through the realization of a cinema in the empty lot opposite the station. Metro de Bon Pastor- and the creation of a public space in the informal parking lot between Sant Adrià, Formiga, de l’Estadella and Flix streets, which will be associated with our citizen participation process.
