The Cerdà plan for the expansion of Barcelona: a model for modern city planning
Urbano Lorente, Judith
Modern city planning started with the Industrial Revolution and the scientific advances of the 19th Century. At the time, Catalan engineer Idelfons Cerdà coined the word "urbanism” as a new and necessary science to deal with cities, having three major preoccupations: hygiene, traffic, and equality. In this article, Judith Urbano discusses Cerda's plan for the expansion of Barcelona and why it is considered an icon of modern planning.
