Barcelona’s Superblock is the Charm of the City!
01 Apr, 2019

In order to improve the livability, vitality and competitiveness of the city and improve the living environment for the residents, Barcelona put forward the concept of “letting the streets serve for living from just for commutation”.

Based on this concept, Barcelona launched a program called “Superblock”, which does not mean constructing new buildings, but instead reutilizing the existing spaces to create a community that will have a series of quiet, comfortable, green spaces and service facilities. The Superblock is rebuilt based on the existing block texture in Barcelona. Within the blocks, it is mainly for the pedestrians and cyclists; while outside the blocks, it is for frequent motor vehicle flow, thus creating more public spaces and green environments for the block.
