Situated in the west of Texas on the border is the city of El Paso. The isolation of Ciudad Juarez in the last years has caused for what used to be a city center vibrant with activity and tourists to now be desolate. Promenades and pedestrian areas have fallen in decay. The project proposes a very public program in the form of a new bullfighting arena in the city center of Ciudad Juarez. This spine links the downtown area of El Paso to the border bridge and the bullfighting arena in Ciudad Juarez creating a strong connection between them.
