Public buildings encompass a varied set of typologies – offices, museums, auditoriums, stations, as well as cultural, social, sports, political, health or religious centres. They all become community facilities and places of encounter and social identification, and therefore their uniqueness and functionality are crucial.
The configuration and design of the public realm conditions our behaviour and relationship with the city. Urban design defines the character of streets and squares, pavements, urban furniture, green space and trees, roads, parking and lighting.
Urban planning is an essential tool for the sustainable development of our cities whose current approach not only studies formal factors such as plot ratio, land use or transport systems but also extends to social, energy and environmental aspects.
The treatment of spaces with natural elements is a genuinely multidisciplinary subject that includes aspects of planning, environmental management, botany, engineering and constructive solutions.
