My new post: in part 4 of a 5-part series, I delve into the deeper vision behind Barcelona’s “superblocks” — how they might become social units, a new way of organizing urban communities for resilience. And I peer into their uncertain political future. https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2019/4/11/18273896/barcelona-spain-politics-superblocks?utm_campaign=drvox&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter …
Y'all, this is my favorite entry in the Barcelona series. It looks at the potential for superblocks beyond just traffic calming -- how they might become a new kind of social unit, to the larger urban fabric what a microgrid is to a grid. Heady stuff.
While you're reading the 4th (and most interesting!) part of my Barcelona series, please feel free to suggest better headlines for it because I hate this one and we couldn't think of anything better. https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2019/4/11/18273896/barcelona-spain-politics-superblocks …
