WALK main focus is the transformation of today cities into livable and human oriented environments with exciting public spaces and meaningful architecture. Cities to discover , explore and experience the full quality of the urban condition, the beauty of people living together.
Public spaces are the common good. We pursue the creation of lively and active public spaces, as democtratic spaces where all citizens are equal. A place to meet, interact, enjoy and discover; undefined and flexibe arranging itself to different functions.
Pedestrianism and new mobility. We seek the transformation of movement in cities to soft mobility systems, where walking and biking regain the space that once used to be for traffic. Cities with clean air, sustainable and more healthy promoting basic public interaction between its neighbours.
Green and sustainable. Pursuing the creation of sustainable, comfortable and healthy living environments by means of design , answering to the challenges our societies face nowadays such as climate change, energy issues and demographic developments through a smart and thoughtful approach
Identity and meaning. In an age of constant transformation at an unprecedent speed, we must seek to find narratives which can bring meaning to our places, anchoring them to its context, its traditions and cultural background.
Bring the local context into first line. Every urban project is born in a constant movement between the direct experience and specificity of the local context, and the global, shared flow of information and knowledge.
