Aureà Cuadrado Urban Sports Park is set out entirely as a skate square. The initial program requested the replication of a few famous skating spots from the city of Barcelona: the Macba wall, the platforms on Paralel, the curved tables at the Plaça dels Països Catalans or the slanting surfaces in Arc de Triomf. The project works within the limits of scope of intervention, making use of changes in level and retaining slopes, in order to place the skate elements, which are linked together according to a common sequence and language. In order to establish a strong continuity link with the surrounding landscape, the interior routes of the park remain untouched, the existing vegetation is brought closer to the interior and the materials used for the project are the same materials previously used in the area: concrete and Corten steel.
