Superillas in Barcelona – large scale


Current subway network

Metro line

Current tramway network

Tram stop_Tram line


Current bus network situation – Not efficient enough, no clear paths

Mobility to the site – large scale


Sections  – small scale



  • Lack of continuity in the public transportation network
  • Low density : not a residential area, not many commerces
  • What about energy ?




Circulation system in the superilla – small scale

Reorganizing the mobility system : changing paradigms from individual car to slow mobility.
More continuity for the pedestrians, bikes and public transports than for the cars.


Functionning of a superilla – section


Public space in the superilla – axonometry


between transportation modes

Public transport hubs – large scale


Public transport hubs – small scale

The public transport network serves the city quite well, and Poblenou is already accessible, but it is necessary to improve the continuity between the subway, tramway, and bus… and the shared bikes and car network, especially.
Several options have to be available for the same trip. The strategy starts from the preexistence of public infrastructure, and the intensification of these hubs.


a single card for all transport modes

Intermodality – axonometry

Simplifying the transportation experience for the users. As a single card is already available for subway + tramway + bus, it should be extended to the bike-sharing and car-sharing networks.
Payment would be made quicker and more simple by a phone app, the user would upload his/her driving license  to his/her monthly or yearly pass, in order to be enabled to use the shared car option.



Energetic strategy

Of course, the aim is to use more electric vehicles and less fuel. But where does the electricity come from ?
The cars and bikes parking facility – also used to recharge the electric buses – would also produce energy itself, and benefit to the whole neighbourhood.
