After breakfast, you will meet your guide to start a day focused on sustainable architecture. In 2000, the Barcelona City Council approved a new plan to convert the old industrial zone of Poblenou into a center of new activities in an answer to solve the crisis created by an outdated architectural model, creating the 22@ District: an experimental area for urbanization. A new model of a compact city, here you will find the most innovative companies coexisting with research centers and technology, housing, facilities, and green spaces. The design of these new networks focuses on the energy efficiency and responsible management of natural resources. The 22@ itinerary includes visits to MediaTIC (Cloud-9), the Disseny Hub building, the Encants Market, the Agbar Tower, Can Framis, among others.
Lunch at a traditional restaurant. After lunch, you will get to see the Ecourban building, a case of design that prioritizes bioclimatic and renewable energy use, and the Bank of Blood and Tissues (SAAS Sabaté), built to create maximum energy efficiency. You will end the full-day tour with a visit to the Forum, with its photovoltaic pergola and the water purification system.
