At present the map of our country portrays a devastating landscape due to the economic crisis. Throughout our walks and tours, we find the presence of some abandoned plot, unfinished constructions, destroyed buildings and obsolete equipment and infrastructure.
We need to rethink and reconsider the layouts of our cities by redesigning these spaces, setting aside the growing urban models of the last decades and focusing on filling these empty urban spaces with different activities that our current and emerging society needs. This would be through the design of new spaces that generate meeting and social places for new uses, opportunities and collaborating economies, where the city projects itself by thinking about the citizens´ needs.
The presence of such spaces is absolutely evident; however, its real content or its hidden potential is not. For this reason, we try to make “visible” the “invisible” and transform into a resource what at first glance seems to be a problem.
