¡Pónle Guinda!

¡Pónle Guinda! was a process of citizen and administrative cooperation in order to carry out a participatory diagnosis and agree on proposals for the transformation of the public space in an area of ​ Guindalera neighborhood (Madrid), popularly known as Guindalera Vieja. The work process in Guindalera Vieja comprised three distinct phases: start-up, participation and preliminary drafting phase.

During the first one, group meetings and interviews were held with municipal technicians and political representatives of the Madrid City Council (Salamanca District), as well as with a representation of the neighborhood’s associative network. 

During the second phase was held the urban and social analysis, fieldwork and observation mapping of the public space along with the open workshops to every neighbor who wanted to participate. That phase closed with conclusion elaboration and its subsequent communication to all the people participating in these workshops. 

Finally, it was elaborated the drafting of the prioritized projects from the previous phases: the proposal of sustainable mobility model for the neighborhood; the establishment of a “toolbox” with general criteria for the design of Guindalera`s public spaces; and the drafting of two preliminary projects, corresponding to the Béjar street, and to the May 28 square and its surroundings. 

The decision-making was based on the experts’ knowledge arising from the fields of sociology, urbanism, and architecture as well as from the neighbors’ shared experience who have been implicated in the participatory process. This process marked the guidelines for the subsequent redevelopment work of the neighborhood.
