Abstract

L’efervescència de la Barcelona del 1900, en procés de modernització, va afavorir l’aparició d’una cultura de l’oci que va viure un moment sense precedents. Els barcelonins utilitzaven el seu temps lliure i es relacionaven entre ells amb iniciatives i activitats de caràcter molt divers, algunes de les quals ja existien i d’altres eren de nova creació. Més enllà de les celebracions tradicionals (festes majors, fontades, processons), es van emprendre innovadores formes de consum cultural, per a tots els gustos i per a totes les butxaques. Es van obrir nombroses sales de cinema, els primers parcs d’atraccions i nous teatres, gràcies als quals el Paral·lel va esdevenir l’epicentre de la nit barcelonina. Aquest llibre ofereix un repertori d’imatges de les diversions, dels entreteniments, de les aficions d’aquella fascinant època de contrastos, la del modernisme.

Abstract

Els precedents del disseny gràfic a Catalunya es remunten a les primeres dècades del segle xx, quan les arts de la modernitat vivien un moment de maduresa (cartellisme, gràfica, perfumeria, interiorisme, entre d’altres) i els artistes catalans participaven amb entusiasme en les avantguardes europees. Tots aquests fenòmens són tractats a La formació del Sistema Disseny Barcelona, com també la implementació de la indústria, l’aparició d’institucions creades pels dissenyadors i la reivindicació d’una professió que aspirava a convertir-se en disciplina, les quals han obert noves perspectives històriques i ens ofereixen una lectura transversal de l’evolució recent d’aquest art. Aquest llibre no sols aplega aportacions de procedències diverses, sinó que és, sens dubte, una obra de referència per a entendre el paper del disseny en un dels països en què gaudeix de més bona acollida

Abstract

In the throes of modernization, the Barcelona of 1900 was buzzing with energy and an unprecedented culture of leisure emerged. The city’s residents made full use of their free time, forging relationships with one another through a highly varied range of initiatives and activities, taking advantage of existing opportunities and creating new ones. In addition to the traditional celebration of civic festivals, popular meals and various types of processions, innovative new forms of cultural consumption sprang up to satisfy all tastes and budgets. Numerous cinemas opened, the first amusement parks threw open their gates and new theatres raised their curtains. Thanks to these developments, the vicinity around the avenue Paral·lel became the epicentre of Barcelona nightlife. This book offers a panoply of images of the diversions, entertainments and hobbies of that fascinating era of contrasts, the turn-of-the-century Barcelona of Modernisme.

Abstract

The last two decades have been marked by intense and accelerated economic, political, and cultural processes that have affected urban spaces. These changes have occurred in different parts of cities (traditional centers, edges, peripheries) and at different levels of the urban system (large and medium-sized cities and in their respective areas of influence). Possibly the clearest expression of the spatial effects on cities can be perceived in their morphological transformations, their territorial dimensions, or in their social problems. Until 2008, urban–territorial processes were a reflection of the logic and inconsistencies of an expansive economic context and of a structural context that favored the development of cities through concurrent processes and actors. As a result, the built land and amount of urbanized and built surfaces increased, together with processes of the expansion and modernization of cities. Since 2008, the expansive economic cycle has ended, and there have been diverse negative consequences. Notably, the construction sector has come to an abrupt halt. Access to credit has also been reduced, and unemployment has increased. The economic recession has caused sociodemographic and socioeconomic issues exemplified by housing vulnerability, with dispossession, evictions, a shortage of social housing, and energy poverty.
