It was written at the beginning of the Spanish democratic period of the 1980s on the initiative of the Ayuntamiento de Málaga, which makes it one of the first revisions of the general planning of capitals of Spain. It emphasizes the principles of “urban urbanism” formulated by Architect Manuel Solá-Morales, who acted as advisor to the editorial team.
We could summarize its three main fronts of action: the “middle road” solving this hierarchy of road of great value for the permeability and general connectivity of the city; The treatment of “interstitial pieces” defining their ordering to integrate them into the general model; And “collective equipment” strategically placing them to enhance its structuring value. As for growth, it is committed to redirect its natural expansion towards the Guadalhorce river with the operation of “Teatinos” and the “West Coast” reordering the primitive industrial zone, delimiting the growth towards the Montes de Málaga. Other unique interventions, such as those defined in the Historic Center, the new Teatinos University Campus, the Technological Park, the Cemetery Park, the Transport Center, the Renfe Plan and the Intermodal Bus Center, the Port Plan, the new Ring Road Rounds , Levante and Poniente Maritime Walks, the new Mediterranean Parks, Huelin, Morlaco … and a myriad of facilities and neighborhood gardens complete the set of proposals and interventions. It was written by Architects D. Quero, S. Moreno and J. Seguí, obtaining the National Urbanism Award from the Ministry of Public Works in 1985.
