A special metropolitan area.
This metropolitan area is special because of the dimension, the low density population but with a lot of citizens working and living on it. So that means transport, endowments acces, and public transport problems.
An area with a strong presence of the car and huge transportation infrastructures located in the coast with a lot of natural places of big interest.
Thats why was necessary to analyse all the aspects: infraestructure, population, industrial nodes, public services, green areas, transport and population mobility; to later propouse a realistic, tied between the different parts and attached to the reality solution. After the analysis different potencials of the metropolitan area arised, which ones could change the actual problematic dynamic.
So the problems/potencials/strategys porposed were divided in:
1. Transportation 2. Agriculture 3. Culture 4. Green areas
And divided in two different scales too:
1. Metropolitan 2. Local
Finnaly, the objective was to find a location to a new neighbourhood for Betanzos and design it.
Was located on a abandoned industrial center close to the ria, surrounded by a natural space and crossed by the railway that actually is breaking the city in two different parts. Designed then, acording to the values taken after the metropolitan/local area analysis.
THE ANALYSIS AND THE PROPOSED SOLUTION.
