Racons Públics

Racons Públics is a competition that encourages people’s participation in the design of their city, recovering and revitalizing for public space points of the city that are run-down, abandoned, overlooked or undervalued. It aims to open up the planning discipline to other fields of the sciences and arts, and to salvage significant spots around the city using participants’ ideas.
