Views of Madrid
CATALOGUE OF PROTECTED VIEWS OF MADRID
Client: General Directorate of Cultural Heritage, Madrid City Hall
Sunlight has advised Madrid´s City Council in the development of a catalogue of protected views, as well as in the definition of a new methodology to evaluate and manage new developments in the urban landscape.
The Catalogue describes a series of views of Madrid, which are divided into: panoramic views, perspectives, representative places and views from the Manzanares river. Some of the most relevant views are analysed through graphic sheets that identify three levels of observation (foreground, middleground and background) where important elements stand out.
Finally, the application of the qualitative visual evaluation will value the impact of new developments on some of the designated views, in order to facilitate an adecuate management and preserve the uniqueness of each view.
