“racons públics” competition. selected


the “cases barates” (cheap housing) neighborhood in can peguera has a retaining wall, a result of a urbanization badly adapted to the physical context. the wall separates the neighborhood from the turó de la peira park. it is a barrier, a cut separating two opposite but complementary realities. a corner with potential to be discovered.
