This project was developed in Group 5 of the PH8 workshop organized by Grupo Aranea with architecture students and promoted by the Alicante City Council. We coordinate this group of students and together with them we had to imagine how a rural and urban fabric could be created in Alfas del Pí that would consolidate the city of the future Alfapolis .

Alfapolis will be built by rescuing the traditions of the place and integrating them into the contemporary scene. It will be a city that will grow little by little according to urban fertility maps. In this growth the integration of the different cultures and the different social levels of its inhabitants will be important, thus creating a heterogeneous and balanced fabric . With strategies such as atomized housing, we will reduce the cost of housing since it can be implemented throughout life as needed.
