  • This story is from a series my study abroad experience in Barcelona, Spain

    Today began with the exploration of the barcelona model of urban regeneration and a discussion on public spaces. The city is abundant with public spaces, from complete city blocks in L'Eixample to the beach and up to Montjuic and Park Güell. The focus of class was more on small plazas and squares, and the center courtyards of the inner city L'Eixample blocks.

    Our topic brought us to see some of these spaces along with the continuation of the tour of the old city ruins and hidden elements from roman times. We checked out some old churches and a museum.

    The city's spaces represent every type of public space. From old city alleyways to modern parks and playgrounds and everything in between. Some of the elements that crafted the array of spaces were fragments from passing residents such as statues and other public are to cultures that accompanied people in their settling in the city.

    It's amazing how diverse a place can be if it is welcoming.
