HSR networks not only connect people reliably across cities and between countries but also offer great opportunities for urban regeneration. Appointed to adapt and design infrastructure surrounding the new HSR connecting Spain and France, we created a modern, interconnected urban environment, realigning
Barcelona’s overground and underground transportation network, which includes the new HSR, metro, intercity railway and bus stops, joining up several existing neighbourhoods to bring improved social cohesion and economic opportunities.
The size and technical complexity of the scheme reinforces Barcelona’s position as a major European railway hub while serving as an urban regeneration tool,
setting standards in railway design.
