La Sagrera Park, in Barcelona, Spain.

The aim of the project is the development of infrastructure services of the new la Sagrera park, promoted by Barcelona Sagrera high speed (BSAV) and is part of the architectural project drawn up by RCR - WEST8 - ALDAY JOVER.

The new la Sagrera park will become the backbone of a great urban operation of 160 hectares with housing for 25,000 new residents and 30,000 new workspaces. With the arrival of the high speed train and the construction of the new la Sagrera station, the opportunity has been taken to cover the tracks and create this green space on top of nearly 40 hectares.
