Vall de Hebrón is the 3rd biggest neighbourhood in Barcelona. The area was urbanised for the Olympic Games, 1992. There is a lot of free space perfect for small wheel sports like skating.
After visiting this place we noticed a big problem though, the pavement. It has holes, the nature breaks through and and has different type of cements. This makes it dangerous, both for young and elderly pedestrians. 
Hex prevents uncontrolled future breaks. Also it allows grass to grow through and makes it easier to fix thanks to the use of patches.
The core of the structure is the hexagonal shape, that can be divided in other shapes to create a modular patch system to fix certain areas. We also thought about the tree surroundings. That way the pavement adapts to nature and not the other way around.
