The forms of control of urban heritage in BCN

The city we live in is the result of two different urban processes linked in time and space. The first process is the consequence of the lack of laws and the profit of the private statement in a capitalist system. The second one is a reaction to this freedom which is imposed by the Town Council to equalize the relationship of the citizens with the city they live in, or to activate an economic development that benefits the own Council. This reaction is materialized by means of an increasing control of the regulative factors of the city. This small thesis analyses these controlling forms in the surrounding area of the Rambla de Poblenou, in Barcelona, from its origins until now.

Master thesis held on 2010 for Theory and History of Architecture.
