The CIT (Integral Transportation Center) is an initiative led by Metro de Madrid to build a new complex on the land occupied by the garages of line 1 on Asturias Avenue, in the surroundings of Plaza Castilla. The team Jardin 1 wins the contest and instructs Batlle i Roig for the landscaping part.
With the proposal of Jardín Metro, it is intended to recover a space for the use and enjoyment of citizens, making known and dignifying this heritage inherent to the city and which had been forgotten. Thus, the new public space brings the infrastructures, which have made Madrid a great capital, closer to its citizens, through a quality, modern, ecological and transparent exterior space, emblems that the company represents.
UrbanNext publishes an article on the cycling and pedestrian path, promoted by the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona (AMB), connecting the city of Barcelona with Esplugues de Llobregat.
“The new cycling path, a green corridor with pacified traffic, is a very charming and extraordinary space. Used for practical and recreational reasons alike, it is reminiscent of country lanes beyond the city limits and major road infrastructures, transforming a forgotten and neglected space into a meeting place and a source of urban continuity for the metropolitan community.”
