Landscape studies

Detailed knowledge of an area, in other words, landscape auscultation, or listening to its beat, is becoming an essential tool for planning, for work on infrastructures and urban development, interventions on built heritage and, in general, for any actions in the area. The IMPU has therefore begun the task of carrying out landscape studies that can provide that knowledge and give rise to thoughts and ideas on intervening to take care of the landscape, improve it and highlight it as a common asset shared by all.

The field of study for these documents are the Urban Landscape Units, that is, parts of the city that have a character and identity that give them a particular idiosyncrasy.

At some time in the future, when they have been completed, all these studies will form the Barcelona Landscape Catalogue.
