Sustainable Mobility

#

Many of our public space projects over the last 30 years can simply be explained as a path that promotes ecological and social continuity among the different parts of the city. In various places we have needed to build bridges that would allow us to repair lost connections, and in most of the interventions we have tried to promote biodiversity to bring about productivity and encourage the leisure of our citizens. These places become the link that’s missing in the chain. They are indeed the Passage between two fragmented situations and they resemble the Military Points described by Richard T.T. Forman in Land Mosaics. These are projects on which we must concentrate all of our activity, because with them we will make a great territory be within our reach.

Green itineraries

We must build a mobility system based on the combination of the best conditions for pedestrians and cyclists and an efficient and integrated public transport system that allows us to have the best possible quality of life. We can structure the urban fabric in relation to slow mobility routes and strengthen the exchange between these itinerary networks and the public transport network, such as the new day-to-day living centres, places that we should equip and expand.

Door to door

The promotion of environmental networks, the construction of an efficient public transport system and the establishment of routes that allow for slow mobility (i.e., pedestrians and bicycles) are three actions that can help us hybridise our cities with each other and with the natural environments that we still have. Batlleiroig is committed to establishing clear roadmaps for pedestrians and bicycles with innovative designs that improve their bioclimatic conditions and which resolve the barriers that currently prevent this from taking place.

Healthy stairs

The buildings can be designed as an extension of public spaces. They can host and promote social dynamics and be experienced and enjoyed like the free spaces that we design for our cities. We can design buildings that promote healthy interior routes, with areas with ample dimensions, with very visible bicycle parking spaces and with attractive open stairs that unite all the rooms and feature gardened terraces that foster relationships with the outdoors.

Water

Visualising the water cycle. Water can be collected in buildings, retained and infiltrated in public spaces and made to reach the nearby natural spaces that we can reclaim, thus creating a drainage system of the territory that rediscovers the places where water can flow, encourages the creation of new ecosystems and facilitates the implementation of new civic extensions.

Productivity

Living on the boundary between the city and the countryside. The city and the country have historically not had a very good connection. The city consumes all the land it needs, imposing laws and eliminating all the systems that used to be there.
