Barcelona planner’s work explored

A traveling exhibition, “Cerdá: The Barcelona Extension,” which focuses on Ildefons Cerdà’s urban planning projects, is on exhibit through Monday, Nov. 10, in the Quiet Room of the SUB.

“Cerdà’s work is unusual because of its highly developed theoretical context and social content, and because its implementation has powerfully affected the subsequent growth and vitality of the city [Barcelona, Spain]. It provided a regional urban design context in Catalonia that lent itself to the architectural innovations of the modernists Gaudí, Domènech and Puíg,” said David Henkel, UNM’s Community and Regional Planning program director.
