“The inauguration of the new use for the Miramar Tower represents in itself a cause for celebration by all residents and, therefore, joy for the city as World Design Capital 2022. This reopening of the space shows once again the strong commitment by Valencia City Council to improving people’s quality of life, converting design into a tool for social transformation. The idea is for the residents themselves to decide what to do with disused sites, bringing new life and activity. We can affirm that, from now on, the Miramar Tower will be a new meeting point for urban culture, as well as revitalizing one of the major entry points into the city,” affirmed Xavi Calvo, director of World Design Capital Valencia 2022.
The mayor, Joan Ribó, expressed his satisfaction after visiting the space, where World Design Capital Valencia 2022 has unfurled a gigantic banner with the aim of welcoming locals and visitors to the city that this year holds the title of World Design Capital. The mayor congratulated the city for the fact that “Valencia has facilities comparable to other European cities and this space is reused to provide an area for citizens, innovation and urban design. Based on simplicity, we still need to know how to give the Tower more uses that we are going to study,” he pointed out.
