Ready-to-Book Tour DIAGONAL - 22@

Smart City Model - New urban strategies

 

Eventually Plaça de les Glòries could be on its way to becoming Barcelona's main central plaza, just as Cerdà had imagined it more than 150 years ago. The ongoing transformation of the long-time transport node into a large park and much-needed green lung places great emphasis on sustainable development and the renaturation of the city. Along with Barcelona's new business and technology district 22@ in the former industrial area of Poblenou it probably has been the neighbourhood with the liveliest planning and building activity in recent years.
