Connections are a key point in architecture, whether they are urban, transport, visual, structural or physical, they all play a fundamental role in architecture. Today's globalization is the seed of new paradigms, both in the economic sphere as well as in human thinking, we should not forget that thanks to globalization the fragmented postmodern conceptualization of the world is staggering.

For its part, appropriation can be defined as the maximum degree of success in an architectural or urban project, is a project is not approved by the user, if it's not appropriated by the user, then any formal or theoretical effort has been in vain. A public space can and should be taken as their own by the users, which essentially means that the right "connections" between users and the project have been established.

Therefore our proposal aims to create a network that comes from connecting elements that serve as basic guidelines for urban design. The conceptual connectors in our proposal are called "nodes" that bind the entire venue together. This will generate a group of cells that accommodate different uses in which in turn will foster appropriation of the entire space.
