This grid gives mobility and accessibility to the center triying to avoid marginality and depopulation of the Casco Vello, as well as potenciate social and economic activities.
The site of the project is placed where the difference in height is saved with less area in plan.
The first questions of the project rise after this specific characteristic.
1) Find a mechanical procedure to solve, with efficiency and security, the ascension from Berbés to castelo, with some intermediate stops in the longitudinal axis, in a way to achieve the maximum urban permeability.
2) Make the platform of castelo work as a big container of different uses.
In this way, we think that the proposal about elevators has the inconvenience in the connection between them.
Our proposal suggests a direct connection, respecting the different stops. With the new technologies and mechanical developments, this solution is possible with an inclinator elevator.
With this solution we introduce the maximum flexibility in the movements improving the mobility in this conflictive zone.
After the morphological analysis of the Casco vello, we do not recommend to add new volumes and shapes. Is because of this that the new small stations and its elements will be in printed glass (with a cloudy sky). This solution camouflages the new buildings with the surroundings. At night, they become an illuminated plafond, avoiding the marginality of the stations.
Every station represents a minimal and specific intervention in relation with the context. They will be covered, closed and with security facilities.
