Since the restoration of democracy in 1979, the city quickly becoming littered with so-called “projectes urbanes” pursuing an improvement of public space and the first step was for the city building. Meanwhile, more than 100 new or updated streets, squares and parks realized. Because of this policy is also private estates investors again became interested in the city. Is invested both in existing neighborhoods as in the “arées nova centralitat” the new urban spaces which the city wants to target further expansion to increase. The 1992 Olympic Games in Barcelona, ​​the generator of a series of huge investments in Barcelona: the Olympic Stadium, the Olympic Village, the relocation of railway lines, a series of new ring roads, a telekommunikatietoren … These interventions are situated all in the existing urban structure. The urban plan with it underlies is pushing the nineteenth century Cerda grid to convert as much as possible and also to restore the link between the city and the sea by kreëren a “city front.”

The projects of squares, parks, buildings are close together and thus each district will be walked. (These ranges do by bus, is the Barcelona traffic not to do (parking problems) and also not sensible because it the city undergoes less that way).
