As our future megacities are defining themselves every day with bustling streets and soaring skyscrapers, a city still craves for many things but mostly – an identity. The 21st century from its onset is rapidly changing how we live and how we perceive the definitions of a city rampantly. ‘Urbanscape’ is the manifestation of the built environment of cities. It not only refers to the configuration of built forms but also the elements that define interstitial spaces. However, what we see today is the progression of ever-increasing skyscrapers that dominate the memories of a city, overpowering smaller elements.

This open ideas competition forms part of a wider research project and seeks designs which encourage and facilitate cultural exchange and integration between immigrant and native communities. Spain’s Costa del Sol has been permanently transformed by the construction boom of the late 20th and early 21st century and its abrupt end with the European financial crisis. Inward looking private residential complexes and commercial facilities sprawl incoherently to form communities inhabited predominantly by immigrants from Northern Europe. The financial crisis brought almost all construction to an abrupt halt. Abandoned structures remain on the periphery of the sprawl as if monuments to the boom and crash. Continue reading
