FastCoExist has a piece on Barcelona’s new urban planning strategy, which aims to curb pollution and car traffic via the superblock.
We can only imagine the endless benefits of this plan for a city as lively and outdoor friendly as Barcelona.
In 2017, Barcelona will start converting itself into a pedestrian city: Inside grids of “superblocks,” non-resident cars will be banned, and what used to be heavily trafficked intersections will turn into pedestrian-friendly city squares. Throughout the city, most traffic will be eliminated from 60% of roads.
