As an island in the middle of the ocean, La Palma is subject to Atlantic’s swell, and it’s capital city is very exposed. This project aims to find a sustainable way to create an infrastructure that protects the city and creates an attractive beach, fully integrated on the island’s environmental conscious philosophy.
