The city under discussion. Madrid
With a horizontal expansion model, Madrid is trying to contain its urban growth with planned neighbourhoods that are more densely populated than the developments of rows of single-family houses that characterise its urban sprawl.
Meanwhile, a series of large-scale operations, such as the construction of huge corporative cities, aim to provide the capital with recognisable urban symbols. The development of mobility infrastructures and the creation of lineal green areas, such as Madrid Rio, are added to a new network of cultural and creative venues that bring vitality to the city.
