Competition - Las Moreras Master Plan

Competition - Las Moreras Master Plan

Client: Urbanismo Nuevo Siglo
Location: Valencia, España (Spain)
Size: 692.000 m2

This is an ideas competition for the implementation of the Masterplan for Sector 14 Moreras-Saler in Valencia. Its singular location, together with its scale, would convert it into one of the most important individual developments within the city to date.

Fenwick Iribarren’s proposal sought to create a unique urban element in the form of an ¨urban island¨ comprising two rows of tower blocks surrounded by diverse landscaped areas: the ¨market garden¨ park; the central park giving a more human scale to the urban island; a green corridor above the sunken railway lines that cross the development; and a new tree lined boulevard that replaces the existing irruptive Saler dual carriageway.
