To Preserve:

urban support: layout of the streets, blocks size, main street, corridor mediators.

Edification: “box” as a formal structure

To Transform:

Central Alley Street:

From an abnegated, backstreet site to a “central” space

From service street to public space

From a space for vehicles to a space for man

From gray to green

Edification:
Box decomposition to create a new spatiality, habitability, comfort, ventilation, lighting, preserving density.

Parking lots:
Relocation underneath the community street, to unify and reorder vehicular traffic within the block, avoiding its use as a vehicular access, restricting it to pedestrians-only. This way the street is provided with a new dynamic, encouraging community interaction. Its construction can be State funded, to later be maintained by a private company.

Sustainability:
Unified, community compromised, trash collection system.
Trash classification, using organic waste for gas production (contributing to a sustainable network service for the block). Increase green spaces.
