Jose Maria de Cardenas Dominguez-Adame, partner in charge of Eddea Arquitectura y Urbanismo and Citythinking, recalls that “Eddea, through Citythinking, participated very early in the configuration of Sevilla City One, contributing our grain of sand in the first brainstorming sessions, convinced that our city would appreciate this initiative to promote our social, cultural, economic, natural and historical heritage, We were convinced that our city would appreciate this initiative to improve our social, cultural, economic, natural and historical heritage, in the context of a competition between medium-sized European cities that are trying to win the battle to improve the quality of life of their citizens, focusing on development, employment, the sustainable construction of the urban environment and the improvement of competitiveness”.
“Today, with the Sevilla City One initiative mature and already running at cruising speed, we believe that our experience in other cities in Europe, Asia or Africa can serve to inspire new strategies, action plans or content to achieve the ambitious goal that unites us all in your project to ensure that Seville becomes a great capital of Southern Europe,” he adds.
