Barcelona exports
architecture

The architectural and town-planning works carried out in Barcelona now constitute an exportable model. Proof of it is that numerous architects from Barcelona are currently working on the reconversion of different urban areas in Europe and other parts of the world, as well as taking part in a wide range of construction works and projects. This influential presence on the international town-planning stage is a result of the world-wide recognition of the so-called "Barcelona model", substantiated by the recent awarding of the RIBA (Royal Institute of British Architects) Gold Medal to our city. The following dossier is a compilation of the many public and private projects which architects- born or based in Barcelona- have conducted in foreign countries over the last three decades. The last appendix to this dossier gives a detailed list of all the works carried out abroad by those professionals since the nineteen sixties.
