Competition for redevelopment of Vallcarca neighborhood in Barcelona

Carles Enrich has won the ideas competition organized by Barcelona City Hall to modify the Plan General Metropolitano (PGM) Hospital Militar-Vallcarca. The new plan for this deteriorated area of the Gracia district seeks coherence with the building typology that characterizes the place, adapting to current social demands. The winning design, titled ‘Arrels’ (roots), promotes an economy of collaboration and proximity, the presence of green zones and water, energy generation systems, workshop-homes, and communal spaces, and reseves close to 6,000 square meters for public housing, 2,570 for urban gardens, and 1,000 for versatile spaces.

The other four finalists were: Flores & Prats Arqs, Ricard Fayos y Antoni Ramon; Raons Públiques, Celobert y Lorena Rius; Pablo Roel, Eva Sánchez y Antonio Santiago; y Cantallops Vicente junto a Bayona Valero.
