Description / Objectives

Looking for new ways to regenerate the urban fabric.

Barcelona is part of the worldwide smart-city network, which efficiently manages its resources and its services and works towards finding a sustainable strategy that regenerates the city.

Superblocks are the result of research into new ways of renovating the city's urban fabric. It consists of putting into practice all the technological and environmental advances that the City Council has at its disposal in small areas of the city, in this case, five superblocks located in Les Corts, Hostafrancs, the Eixample, the area around Plaça de les Glòries and Poblenou.

The new orthogonal bus network and Bicing are being deployed in these superblocks, in order to reduce noise pollution. There are a greater number of leisure areas and new uses for these areas are promoted. Tree cover and green areas are improved. Productive activities are promoted in order to generate new jobs, which are also subject to social inclusion. New systems for renewable energy and wastewater and rainwater use are introduced.

And all of this is done through a public-participation system, which will be able to define and develop all of these actions.
