Architecture and urban development
New urban uses for the new metropolitan city
Any significant urban transformation within the metropolitan area of the city of Barcelona is, even today, an improvement to and a correction of the major urban development processes that the city underwent during the period of rapid urban expansion in the last century, mainly during the 1960s and 1970s.
The development of the HUBc project in the metropolitan area of Barcelona is part of a larger set of complex urban renovations and improvements. The resulting urban transformation proposed by the health campus HUBc will primarily be concentrated to the south of metropolitan city, around the important arterial highway which connects Barcelona to its airport and the coast.
