Jacint Verdaguer Square
The first project decision is to change the concept of an “island” to a “peninsula” type plaza by eliminating the road that runs along its south side. The integration of a pre-existing protected element in the center of the square is an important challenge, since the new centrality is displaced to the south. A large displaced circle gives rise to a new central space, with other semi-circular elements orbiting around it.
Organic geometries that orbit around a new center, give rise to the various areas and entrances of the renovated Jacint Verdaguer square
A pedestal, a playground and green parterres are part of this universe around the new centrality. The square becomes a living space, but it allows you to cross it naturally in multiple directions. Porous pavements of various textures are predominant, while the new vegetation acts as a visual filter, creating a human and natural space in the city center.
