Abstract

This article attempts to show the influence of Enric Miralles' project in Santa Rosa's park (1992-2001), in Mollet del Vallés (North-West of Barcelona). How in the middle of an empty, degraded, and useless field, the contemporaneous architect assumes the responsibility of intervene to give live to this wasteland generating an ideal landscape, amending the breach previously existing in the surroundings. This project proves that there are still some models and practices that enlighten the future of public space in contemporary city. The park shows that the local authorities chose the right man for the job. Nowadays, the people of the districts of Santa Rosa, Plana Lledó and Can Borrell (a very old neighborhood, a working-class district of the 60's and a new neighborhood) walk freely and enjoy collectively of the environment.
