Fertile Eyes

In an historical context marked by major upheavals following the Spanish political transition and the rise of the nationalist discourse in Catalonia, design and architecture provided Barcelona with the foundations of its new urban narrative: that of a post-industrial provincial capital in decline miraculously transformed into a sophisticated European metropolis, as the city of design. The concepts of local identity and modernity were brought to life in urban settings and daily objects within everyone’s reach.
Taking readers on both an entertaining and historically rigorous journey, this book focuses on the milestones in the recent history of design in Barcelona, since its emergence in the sixties, through the euphoria of the 1992 Olympic Games, up until the more recent work of today’s designers. La Barcelona del diseño looks at both professional practice and production, retail, institutional mediation, the process of urban regeneration, popular consumption and use itself, offering a detailed analysis of the evolution, meaning and value of design in Barcelona.
