Barcelona - The Urban Evolution of a Compact City


on order - due August/September 2016


Barcelona can be regarded as a prototype of a European Mediterranean city with a long urban tradition. A history of urban planning necessarily includes a summary of the territorial and urban experience, and pays particular attention to the physical dimensions of the city that condition its cultural and economic development. This book centers on the construction of Barcelona, taking as its basis the most important planning operations and city projects, and drawing on various sources for the different phases.
