    The project consists then of a bifold operation: On one hand there is an extensive landscaping strategy that aims at the integration of the site with its surrounding urban fabric as well as to the reduction of the urban grain in the site.

These nodes can vary in their materialization; from surface treatment, to ground operations, to the organization of vegetation and urban furniture and even to temporal and semi permanent constructions. This is a multi scalar strategy where mayor projects as the harbour space in different scales.
