Urdanibia Square

Plaza Urdanibia de Irún, de SCOB arquitectes

Urdanibia Square is the central public space of the old town. The project recovers this emblematic zone for pedestrians and establishes a sense of complicity with the existing urban fabric and its history. The shape of the square absorbs the existing street and facade alignments, trees, public buildings and other historic street furniture into its design. A major challenge for this project is to give this large, previously fragmented space a new unitary aspect.
