Each superblock is organized around a public school, which was meant to become the center of community life. In addition, a service center was planned for the whole neighborhood, though it was only built many years later, including a cultural and commercial center.
The whole plan is conceived using a square module of 4.20 m side, which was superimposed to the hexagonal layout. With this structure, the architects – A. Perpiñá, L. Iglesias, and C. de Miguel- were able to create a variety of housing typologies. The majority of residential buildings are 4-5 height, while several 8-12 floors towers give character to the area."""
