Description Change this

The urban project was developed by the Spanish architect Jose Luis Romany.

This project is part of the 'Poblados dirigidos' developed during the 50s in Madrid.

They were a way to introduce new housing areas following modern guidelines and with very tight budgets. All those houses were meant to be a fast, clean and organised way to relocate the amount of workers coming from the rural surroundings.

The project was developed in a very detailed way, paying special attention to the urban spaces, the choice of the materials and the modulation of the urban fabric.

There are many different typologies of housing mixed in an very clever way shaped and orientated according to the sun hours.
