Arc de Triomf

Objective:

This page is dedicated to the written and graphic representation of a Public Space. The objective is to document both social and physical aspects towards an integrated understanding. This site also welcomes participation as both a quick vote and more in-depth input from neighborhood stakeholders in order to describe the lived experience of the space. Together, we can build a strong body of knowledge of our built environment in order to stimulate informed proposals for the maintenance, improvement or interventions in Public Space.
