This thesis explores the physical and spatial requirements that would allow a free trade zone to operate efficiently within the Port of Ponce. The form of this economic enterprise is seen as an integration of the industrial machine and the city's urban fabric. Layers of physical forms generated from past economic programs have given Ponce its rich character. The design proposes to introduce a new civic image that will enhance the urban experience and give clarity to the workings of the trade zone and its port.
