west 8: sagrera linear park winning design

urban design and landscape architects west 8 in collaboration with aldayjover and RCR has won the competition for the design of the ‘sagrera linear park’, a diagonal public green space running through the heart of barcelona, spain. a part of a new ‘slow’ barcelona initiative that gives relief to the urban rush, the new park connects the sea, the city, and its natural surroundings together with a variety of zones that harvest biodiversity.

reflecting the identity of its historical neighbourhoods, the sagrera linear park consists of series of micro-parks that are linked together by a common diagonal axis. generously shaded walkways are provided for pedestrians and cyclists, with a number of pause points in the form of fountains and informal seating throughout. the 222,000 m2 project rests on the public transport infrastructure and will offer a dynamic green space for visitors and locals alike.
