Connecting the Sea and the Mountains

La Sagrera Linear Park, Barcelona, SP

A new green diagonal axis extending into the very heart of 21st-century Barcelona.

The burial of the old railroad tracks and the construction of the new high speed railway station provides an unprecedented opportunity to convert this area into Barcelona’s largest urban park. The new 4 km of green space, appropriate and reuse the obsolete infrastructure, to establish a new green connection between existing neighborhoods.

The initiative is the key to improving biodiversity and strengthening the city’s urban ecological network.
