Metropolitan Passages competition, Barcelona
The AMB (Barcelona Metropolitan Area) is a public administration with competencies in the areas of social cohesion, territorial and urban planning, mobility, transport, waste management, water supply, environment protection, social housing, infrastructures and economic promotion in the metropolitan territory. The metropolitan area, one of the most populated in Europe, has built 48% of the 636 km2 comprising its territory. The rest is occupied by 25 km of beaches and more than 25,000 hectares of natural areas.
The AMB is currently preparing the Metropolitan Master Plan (PDU) and the project “Passages” is an opportunity for international reflection, discussion and experimentation that will nourish the process.
