River management strategy

Self-promoted, 10/2018


Rivers have historically structured the region of Gipuzkoa. However, in the aftermath of deindustrialisation, their use is unclear, given that most of the industry in its edges is decomissioning. Therefore, rivers offer an unbeatable opportunity to improve our cities and the connections between them, by offering new places to enjoy outdoors.

The work is structured in four main axis of intervention: nature, public space, mobility and knowledge. By proposing strategies in all four issues yet acting and communicating in a unified manner, the project aims to make interventions in rivers more successful, cost-effective and knowledgeable for the citizens.
