Barcelona – Rethinking Urbanistic Projects
Pages 27

strategies which sought to reinterpret existing urban structures and to restruc-

ture primary functional systems in order to face up to the start of the new

century. In a description of this process it is vital to bring a new approach to

certain of the city’s urban planning projects, with a view to including new urban

dynamics.
