A Good Way To Measure A City Is How Well It Treats The Children That Live In It

In all the discussion of redesigning cities, how many people think of how they look from a shorter vantage point?

This academic exercise studies an alternative urban development for the area around the culture kilometer. The aim is to design a street network capable to enhance accessibility towards the seaside, rather than parallel, meaning that new roads will be designed to run from the city towards the seaside rather than parallel to it. A road running parallel to the seaside may reinforce the physical and mental separation between the city and the seaside.
