This work, a joint Prize winner, is the result of collective effort on a large scale, but by means of different specific interventions. It has given relevance to the capacity of the river to structure the city. It has demonstrated how to integrate a river system with urban patterns, giving a sense both of continuity and uniqueness of spaces. This large work is remarkable for its coherence since it covers the entire riverbank space and includes the interventions of several local architects who have sought to continue Josep Plecnik’s legendary project of bridges and riverbank buildings.
