"The promenade in Benidorm, a new transitional location between built city and the natural space of sea and beach.
The promenade is not understood as a frontier/borderline but as an intermediary space rendering this transition permeable.
It is structured as a place with a rich topography, as a dynamic space that accommodates the act of strolling and watching the sea, but also organizes different areas for stopping and relaxing in.
The promenade subsumes the longitudinal and transverse flows of the different circulations and channels these, allowing easy access to the beach. It eliminates architectural barriers, permitting direct access from parking places."
