DESIGN CITIES: BARCELONA
Barcelonans live practically outdoors, which is normal for a south European city. Theirs is a lively, free and easy life style. The outdoor space in the city is like a common sitting room for all to enjoy. There are chairs on the street that are just as comfortable as those at home; and there are easily accessible parks and squares that are all connected. Who would want to go home when you can engage in so many social activities there? In designing these breathing spaces in the city in the 80s, the aim was to make it open to all. In recent years the government has created the new district, 22@, specifically for developing creative industries. Internationally renowned architects were brought in to design buildings to serve as landmarks to lend prestige to the area and the city. This brought in a different scene to the original one, which emphasizes an organic and harmonious approach to designing urban space.
