Ciutat Vella (highlighted on the zone map) is a district of Barcelona, numbered district 1. It means “old city” in Catalan and refers to the oldest neighborhoods in the city of Barcelona, Spain. Ciutat Vella is nestled between the Mediterranean Sea and the neighborhood called l‘eixample (the extension). It is considered as the center of the city; the Plaça Catalunya is one of the most popular meeting points in all of Catalonia.

Located at the south side of Ciutat Vella (dividing the raval and barri gòtic) are the Boulevards Les Rambles since they are continuous. Les Rambles stretches from Placa Catalunya to the Mediterranean Sea and, since the 1990s, now extends out over the sea into one of Barcelona’s newest centers of entertainment, Maremagnum. Its activities such as flower’s shop, animal vendors, temporary art fairs, and both theaters located here. Les rambles are among the most frequently traveled streets by pedestrians in Barcelona. The site characterized as a dense urban pedestrian movement and its offers variation of functions and it has the quality of the surrounding site that has been existed, in other word, well known area by travelers. The ideal location is domestic travelers and also the attraction for tourists are taking place. The key factors for both sites are people, movement, pedestrian, and the existing attractors.

The design aim is to explore the appearance of an autonomous and mobile architecture, which could be transformed or moved to other areas easily. This idea tries to delineate the idea of demolition whenever it is not usable anymore and flexible.
