A Coruña, Spain
The project “Huellas” brings back to live the ancient tradition of drying the fishing nets in front of the port. It is a symbol of a way of life that shaped A Coruña historically, although nowadays it is becoming less and less present in its urban context.
The reused fishing nets represent the naval past that made this place one of the liveliest areas in town. A Coruña has experience a massive transformation and today it is only possible to find traces of this traditions in the outskirts of the city.
“Huellas” was a collaborative project by Basurama and local architects, designers and students. It was part of the Festival Mar de Mares.
