DescriptionThis project is located next to Mirasol station, on the railway line Barcelona-Terrasa, a linear strip to the south with a significant topographic leap that determines the adopted solution.
The functional program of the building is rich and complex. Its mixed uses - housing, commercial, office, library and municipal market - responds to its status as a major reference of a public complex.
The project section is divided by uses and levels from a horizontal plane which is arranged in three main parts: housing, library and offices. From the relative position of these three volumes and the relationships established between their constructed masses and the voids between them, comes a sequence of intertwined spaces - streets, squares and porches - that make the most of the exceptional conditions of the site and highlight the public nature of the project.
