Proposal presented to the City of Madrid to give use to the numerous ugly utility boxes that appear in the city streets. The utility boxes are transformed from an eyesore to a useful support for reinforcing the identity of public spaces thanks to their artistic or informative value.
Using the new district of Valdebebas as an example, the “Personalities” program is presented, in which a new skin is provided for the boxes representing the persons that have been distinguished and given name to the streets and plazas of the district, mainly planners, architects, landscape architects and engineers. The objective is to reinforce the knowledge of residents about the space they inhabit and its history, by making them aware of the lives of the personalities that give name to the streets of their neighborhood.
