Lucy Stone Arts, Culture & Gaudi Matt Kerr Harbourside & Port Vell Jamie C (Jesus) The Olympic Village How successful we ALL think regeneration has been in Barcelona? Barcelona has strong links with the artists Gaudi, and it's wealth of culture and history. Barcelona wanted to make their redevelopment into a fashionable city, and give the place a 'European' feel. La Rambla; the main street and throughfare of the city. Was redeveloped from a old medieval city into a tree lined boulevard. The government decided to regenerate the city due to the arrival of the Olympics. The area was regenerated for pedestrians and traffic to move easily throughout the city. Also; shops and small cafe's were built, markets have been installed and street artists were aloud to work on the area to make it a modern scene. Gaudi and Park Guell Gaudi is a location that is clearly associated with Barcelona and has been very exploited over the years. The unique house built in the center of the area by Gaudi has been turned into a museum and the Park Guell in the North of the inner city is a monument to his architecture and art. The most famous landmark in the city it Gaudi's masterpiece, the cathedral Sagrada Famila. It is still unfinished. The city places all of it's art at the heart of the city, along the waterfront with statues from the Pop Art movement. Local artists showed encouraged pride in it's urban fabric and spaces. Brand new facilities added to the park included a velodrome, 50m swimming pool and a diving facilities. This provided a excellent base for the games and also facilities for the people of Barcelona after the games. The Olympic park is built on Mont Juic Harbour side regeneration was arguably the biggest improvement to the city. The opportunity to get more tourism was the olympics in 1992. The old port was inferior to other Mediterranean ports and so was not as used, this is because it did not have the required sizes or technology of other ports. Insustry/Logistics Tourism Port Vell was the old port of Barcelona which has been regenerated and made into the main tourism area of Barcelona. Due to it being an old industrial area the urban fabric of the area is very good so alot of the old buildings have been kept. Along with alot of art on the streets and modern open areas the area has alot of tourism. There is a logistics area of the port and an industry section, this industry section is a newer area, after the regeneration. This area deals with car imports, oil and other resources The regeneration of Barcelona resulted in being very successful. Since the 1992 olympics the re-development of the city made the tourism and over quality of the location flourish. Barcelona is now the twelfth most popular city destination in the world. The media became the key to most of the success in Barcelona - advertising the new culture and arts of the city. Also highlighting the new image of the city, attracting more and more tourists. Since the regeneration the cities economy has flourished and the income has mainly come from the tourism aspect. Which is evidence of the success of the project. So how successful was the regeneration?
