In recent years Barcelona has positioned itself as a pioneer in the implementation of urban resiliency. Resulting in many architecture offices around the world come to Barcelona focusing on discover these strategies with which it is being designed the future of our city. The objectives include not only a greener city, but also the capacity to integrate multicultural complexity into our urban fabric in a way that is more respectful and sustainable.
BAW has designed various tours for Architects to showcase these strategies. These routes will take the walker through different projects, public spaces, green zones, and “superblocks”. We will consider what are the difficulties and challenges of each project in reaching the common goal of increasing space for public interaction to reinforce the social fabric of each neighborhood thus making Barcelona a city that is greener, more diverse, and more sustainable.
