Shadow Benches

Shadow Benches

Vacant lot

Proposal made in the city of Lleida in order to transform a trash-public space into an useful public space. The space is located in a very hot city with very few places to sit. The proposal consists in the ground cleaning of a public vacant lot and the incorporation of a classical bench under the shadow made by the existing wall, in order to be used by the neighbourhoods.
