from the relation | Two tools: small level changes and shadow. These two single ingredients are responsible for the space diversification and the multiplication of the uses. Without zooning the functions, the needs mix up and cohabit. The central space is shattered. The road crosses the different parts. The cars occupy the interstices. The cloisters and the commercial activities are assaulted, absorbed. The churchyard is circumscribed. The market overlaps everything. The events are free to interpret and exploit the new different spatial aptitudes. The work is primarily approached by sections. The mobility and the parking organization remain on one level, the aggregation areas stay on another. The contact points allow the constant feasibility and walkability of the space. Once defined what is the resting and meeting space, what remains is mobility and circulation. The water, from a celebratory element, becomes evocative presence. From a monument to a dynamic and changing subject. Not unrelated to climatic and seasonal changes, its perimeter varies considerably, involving in its transformation the whole square.
