Bajo el adoquín está el jardín
Urban intervention
Natural turf



This urban intervention took place within the project “Barrios creando barrios”, the Third Public Art, Action and Social Struggle Competition organized by the local neighbours of a district of Madrid called Lavapiés. Traditionally one of the poorer neighbourhoods near the city centre, Lavapiés is an area with a high concentration of immigrants, and also an area lacking in all kinds of social resources and urban plans related to the necessities and the desires of its inhabitants. Diana Larrea’s proposal consisted in covering part of the stone pavement of a huge square with natural turf, to call attention to the scarce green zones that this area of the city possesses.
