Scope and content:
The project series documents the competition entry and infrastructure development of the northeast coast park and adjoining recycling plant in Santa Adriá de Besòs, Barcelona, Spain. The firm identified this project as number 133.

The competition was organized by the Barcelona City Council and was part of a larger plan to develop new infrastructure for Barcelona, as the Host City for the International Forum of Cultures held in 2004. A number of architects and firms were involved in other projects related to the infrastructure plan, like the South East Coastal Park & Auditoriums by the Foreign Office Architects (See AP171.S1.2000.D6).

Documenting the project are design development and working drawings, correspondence, invoices, minutes, project descriptions, studies, budgets, contracts, reference, photographic and digital materials, and a videocassette.

Archivist's note:
  • This project series originally contained two sub-series that grouped records according to the park and recycling plant. It was re-processed by Alexandra Jokinen in 2020 to compile all the records. This decision was made to reflect the idea that the creators considered both the park and plant to be one project.
