The city is probably the most human object we can find, because it adapts nature to its needs. These needs, belonging to Valdebebas’ future inhabitants, were considered at the start of the design of this grand project. Since its conception, Valdebebas has had recovering space for citizens and creating a more human and pleasant city as a maxim. In short, designing a more easier to live in city.
Based on the recommendations of mobility studies, a reduction in motorised vehicle traffic lanes in favour of open spaces has been planned, introducing bicycle lanes and new tree alignments. In addition, numerous innovative sustainability actions have determined the project’s line of development, incorporating both urban design aspects and the restoration of degraded areas.
What’s more, the establishment of conditions determined by the by-laws defined in the project will facilitate personal contacts and foster community life, leisure and relaxation opportunities, local trade, equal opportunities and mobility of inhabitants.
