Thesis Testing Review

First Stage 5 review testing our initial thesis proposal in Madrid. In the picture above are the existing Noli plan of Madrid on the left and our proposals in the city on the right.

I proposed a new walking route through the city as a reaction against the chaotic Medieval city. This was in response to how the people of Madrid use public space in the evening as an extension of their own homes, going on the dia un paseo ,to take a walk. The new walking route, an Architectural Promenade, would connect Plaza Mayor, the Teatro Real, Grand Via and Puerta del Sol in a circular route that would allow easier orientation within the city.
