Abstract

The aim of this urban study is twofold: On one hand, it is an essay against the zoning regulations applied in the suburbia. It operates as a progressive urban approach on potential architecture, which explores the spatial deterioration of the modern built environment by analysing the potential (also risks) of existing suburban infrastructures and generating new spatial games. On another hand, this is also part of the ongoing research experiences carried out by Ph.D. students at Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB) in the doctorate programme called ‘The New Tools of Architecture’. It triggers a more complex study on the manipulation of urban accidents. Also it emphasizes both the recuperation of public spaces in sprawl areas to preserve sustainable urban systems and also the creation of innovative strategies of urban reactivation mainly in European and Latin American cities.
