The Open Extra proposes, this time, three routes (all on Saturday). The first, on June 14 at the Ciutadella, explains as due to the destruction of the environment of the neighborhood, just overlapping two model city: the medieval model (result of individual planning, without a rational urban design and planning Street as a functional space) with the totalitarian model, based on tax and unit orders.
The second, on June 28 in Riverside, ranging from destruction of the medieval neighborhood structure to the progressive transformation into a so-called "museum city", a type of collage where tradition coexists with the current identity.
The third, on July 5 in Barceloneta, discloses the incorporation of land Maians island for the new district of geometric design, a fact that provides a change of orientation and an area of growing importance for the whole city.
All three routes will be developed, in their days, between 10 and 13 h.
