The Urban Interventions for the Promotion, Management, and Planification of Public Space speak to the rapid changes in the city of Torre Pacheco. These structures contribute to the city by developing an organized and integrated way to engage multi-racial, cultural, and touristic growing demographics. The project appears from the creation of a new topography that indexes and qualifies this zone of expansion in Torre Pacheco on a plot of public works which constitute an urban, cultural, and enjoyment alternative for citizens.
