Pocket Park La Halte

vvv architecture urbanisme + Bloc Paysage

“It is common to relate neglected spaces to territorial limits generated by infrastructure. Due to their peripherical condition, borders tend to be abandoned and not considered part of the public terrain. The project by vvv architecture ubanisme uses small architectural interventions to make areas next to the railroads accessible and usable. Despite having a precise form and strong materiality, the pieces have an abstract character that allows the citizens to use the space openly” Anna Puigjaner
