The Paseo Marítimo: Where the City Meets the Sea
Tile of Spain USA
OCTOBER 4, 2019
The Paseo Marítimo (Promenade) by Carlos Ferrater and Xavier Marti of OAB is a colorful esplanade built along West Beach in Benidorm, Spain. The promenade is not meant to be a border, rather a transition where the city meets the sea. Designed as a dynamic space, the esplanade suggests different walking paths that provide a scenic view of the beach while providing multiple areas where people can sit and enjoy the rich landscape of Playa de Poniente, without any architectural limitations.
