Walk with me and discover another side of Barcelona, lesser known by tourists! In the last fifteen years Poblenou has gone through an intense process of urban renovation, from an industrial semi abandoned area to a technological hub. Having lived there and studied about the urban strategies applied allowed to deeply understand the changes that this neighbourhood has gone through. Now Poblenou is a kind of a trendy district, still under transformation and filled up with examples of contemporary architecture as well as heritage buildings in an area that is full of contrasts where ultra-modern buildings coexist with old warehouses and even empty lots. This experience will take you out off the beaten path and allow you to have a wider understanding of how new technologies are reshaping not only cities but our everyday lives. We will learn about the 22@ urban plan and the new Superilla pilot project and get in contact with some of the newest Smart Cities strategies for a city that is at the forefront of urban technological innovation! --- For private or personalized tours , alternative dates, time or group size: Please, get in contact!! --- Check my other experiences too! > Best of Modernism & Gaudí w/ architect: www.airbnb.com/experiences/262816 > Gothic Quarter with a local!: www.airbnb.com/experiences/33471 > Barcelona Beach & Parks Bike Ride: www.airbnb.com/experiences/34154
I'm an architect and designer, originally from Brazil who moved to Barcelona many years ago. I’m a life enthusiast who loves to travel, meet new people and to share! As a researcher I've been studying urban phenomena for years and I'm deeply interested in how new technologies are reshaping our cities and life. I have a post-graduation on Urban Studies at the Bauhaus Dessau/Germany and a Master's degree in Urban Management at UPC/ Barcelona. Currently I'm doing my PhD here. I consider Barcelona a city that is at the vanguard of urban technological innovation.

We’ll walk around Poblenou neighbourhood and 22@ district visiting emblematic contemporary architecture landmarks and the most high-tech buildings in the city. You will have the chance to see Agbar Tower, Design Hub, Els Encants Flea Market and other treasures of this creative district. On our way we'll have a drink in one of the nicest cafés in the area so I can share with you my experience and perspective as an architect as well as a local.
