Spanish architect David Bravo Salva designed this refurbishment of a wall in an urban neighborhood of Barcelona, Spain. The aim of the project is in one hand to continue the sequential logic of the urban elements that organize the street like lamps, benches and trees and on the other hand play with the texture changes that can be appreciated in different ways depending on the angle it is viewed from and speed at which the observer interacts (by foot, by car, by bicycle…) with the work. The project tries to integrate chromaticaly with the materials of the environment to be balanced with the urban space surrounding. All the ideas are materialized in a sequential of wood strips that creates a filter over de nude wall. This filter has irregular pattern of 3 dimensional circular convex protrusions that are meant to suggest the 10 constituent districts of the city of Barcelona loosely arranged geographically.
