Urbanism & restoration

Plasencia, Spain

The proposal focuses on two main actions: interventions for wall preservation in order to repair analized pathologies, and interventions for redefining the wall and its surroundings, as a new urban element which supports the city.

At the point of planning the wall restoration, it appears the dilemma: whether to recover the wall as a monument of the city or to preserve also added constructions which are part of the city and its identity. In that case, some elements are worthy to maintain and other should be erased because they have no historical or patrimonial value.
