Creación de imagen, visibilidad y turismo como estrategias de crecimiento económico de la ciudad
Casellas,Antònia; Jutgla,Esteve Dot; Pallares-Barbera,Montserrat;
Finisterra - Revista Portuguesa de Geografia , 2010,
Abstract: the aim of this paper is to analyse how barcelona?s economic growth since the 1990s has been based on the production of advanced services, in which image creation and tourism have played a key role. in this context, we emphasise the role played by macro-events, such as the 1992 olympic games, which have brought about important changes to barcelona?s economic model, and we highlight the importance of public-private partnerships and strategic planning. additionally, we analyse the economic impact of tourism upon the city in the period 1990-2010, and we conclude with some reflections on the implications upon public space entailed by this growth strategy.

Abstract: Image creation, visibility and tourism. Growth strategies for the future? The aim of this paper is to analyse how Barcelona’s economic growth since the 1990s has been based on the production of advanced services, in which image creation and tourism have played a key role. In this context, we emphasise the role played by macro-events, such as the 1992 Olympic Games, which have brought about important changes to Barcelona’s economic model, and we highlight the importance of public-private partnerships and strategic planning. Additionally, we analyse the economic impact of tourism upon the city in the period 1990-2010, and we conclude with some reflections on the implications upon public space entailed by this growth strategy.
Artists, Cultural Gentrification and Public Policy
Antònia Casellas,Esteve Dot-Jutgla,Montserrat Pallares-Barbera
Urbani Izziv , 2012,
Abstract: Since the 1980s, artists have been studied as agents of urban gentrification. Well established theories and case studies have provided numerous evidences of the role of artists as initiators of the gentrification process in working-class neighborhoods. From a productive-side perspective, placing an emphasis on the rent-gap and land development, as well as consumption-side perspective, analyzing the features of individuals, art production and artists have been identified as a source of initial gentrification. Complementary theorizations have studied the second wave of displacement produced by the massive arrival of private capital, which often has affected the artists themselves. The present paper adds to the body of literature than identifies the public sector as another key agent of gentrification. The paper analyzes the role of Barcelona’s public sector in the process of implementing this redevelopment program, and its interaction with artists in the neighborhood. In specific terms, it discusses the case of the Hangar Collective, located in Can Ricart, an old factory building which had been the home of small firms and artist groups. This center was at the heart of the urban struggle to maintain the status of firms and artists in the neighborhood, and to preserve the architectonic structure of the old factory complex. By 2010, once displaced small firms and groups of low-budget artists, only the artist’s association with Hangar, supported by public funds, remained in Can Ricart.
Cerdà in Barcelona: potreba po novem mestu in zagotavljanju storitev
Montserrat Pallares-Barbera,Anna Badia,Jordi Duch
Urbani Izziv , 2011,
Abstract: V lanku se obravnava na rt urbane iritve Barcelone, ki ga je leta 1860 izdelal Ildefons Cerdà, ali natan neje, kako in zakaj je bilo mesto zasnovano na tako edinstvni na in, pri emer je imelo pomembno vlogo zagotavljanje storitev prebivalstvu. Cerdàjev predlog iritve je temeljil na poglobljeni dru beno-statisti ni tudiji bivalnih pogojev v stari Barceloni. Visoka umrljivost pripadnikov delavskega razreda ter slabi zdravstveni in izobra evalni pogoji so Cerdàja napeljali k oblikovanju nove vrste urbanisti nega na rtovanja, ki jo je opredelil kot urbanizem . V predlogu za novo mesto je predvidel posebna obmo ja za storitve, kot so tr nice, ole in bolni nice. V prvem delu lanka so opisane urbanisti ne in politi ne okoli ine v Barceloni, predstavljeni pa so tudi statisti ni podatki, na katerih je Cerdà oblikoval svoj prispevek. V drugem delu lanka je s pomo jo lokacijske teorije in geografskega informacijskega sistema (GIS) analiziran vzorec lokacij in prebivalcev, ki uporabljajo tr nice in bolni nice. Na podlagi topografskih na rtov iz let 1926 in 1975 je opravljena tudija razvoja iritve vse do kon ne stopnje. Dejanski razvoj mesta je bil druga en od Cerdàjevega predloga, in sicer deloma zaradi nepri akovane rasti gostote prebivalstva in grajenega okolja ter ve je zasedenosti stavb, vseeno pa je bil osnova za razporeditev ulic in avenij.

Cerdà and Barcelona: The need for a new city and service provision
Montserrat Pallares Barbera,Anna Badia,Jordi Duch
Urbani Izziv , 2011,
Abstract: This paper examines Ildefons Cerdà’s 1860 Plan for the Urban Expansion of Barcelona; specifically, how and why it was conceived in a unique way, in which the provision of services to the population was an important part. Cerdà based his expansion proposal on an in depth socio statistical study of old Barcelona’s population conditions. The high mortality rates of the working class population and poor health and education conditions pushed Cerdà to design a new type of urban planning, which he defined as “urbanism”. In his proposal for the new city, he planned the location of services such as marketplaces, schools and hospitals. The first part of this paper introduces the urban and political preconditions of Barcelona and the statistics on which Cerdà based his contribution. The second part uses location theory and a geographic information system (GIS) to analyse the pattern of location and the population served by markets and hospitals. In addition, topographic maps from 1926 and 1975 are used to study the development of the expansion up to when it was fully developed. The evolution of the city differed from Cerdà’s proposal, partly due to unexpected increases in population density, the built environment, and higher amounts of building occupation. Nevertheless, Cerdà’s layout of streets and avenues has prevailed.
A dry electrophysiology electrode using CNT arrays
Giulio Ruffini,Stephen Dunne,Esteve Farres,Josep Marco-Pallares,Chris Ray,Ernest Mendoza,Ravi Silva,Carles Grau
Physics , 2005,
Abstract: We describe the concept of a dry electrode sensor for biopotential measurement applications (ENOBIO) designed to eliminate the noise and inconvenience associated to the use of electrolytic gel. ENOBIO uses nanotechnology to remove gel-related noise, as well as maintaining a good contact impedance to minimise interference noise. The contact surface of the electrode will be covered with an array/forest of carbon nanotubes and will also be tested with an Ag/AgCl coating to provide ionic-electronic transduction. The nanotubes are to penetrate the outer layers of the skin, the Stratum Corneum, improving electrical contact. We discuss requirements, skin properties, nanotube penetration and transduction, noise sources, prototype design logic and biocompatibility. A future paper will report test results.
The Project Approach: Meeting the State Standards
Dot Schuler
Early Childhood Research & Practice , 2000,
Abstract: This paper suggests that when engaged in project work, children apply most of the skills identified in the age-appropriate state learning standards. To illustrate how good-quality project work addresses the Illinois state learning standards, this paper describes a project conducted by a second-grade class on their community-Grafton, Illinois. The paper focuses on two children who, as part of the Grafton project, studied churches in the community. The paper describes the project's three phases and discusses how, through the process of investigating a topic of interest to them, representing their new knowledge, and sharing their work with others, the children applied the skills identified by the Illinois state learning standards as necessary for early elementary school students.
ENOBIO - First tests of a dry electrophysiology electrode using carbon nanotubes
Giulio Ruffini,Stephen Dunne,Esteve Farres,Paul C. P. Watts,Ernest Mendoza,Ravi Silva,Carles Grau,Josep Marco-Pallares,Lluis Fuentemilla,Bjorn Vandecasteele
Physics , 2006,
Abstract: We describe the development and first tests of Enobio, a dry electrode sensor concept for biopotential applications. In the proposed electrodes, the tip of the electrode is covered with a forest of multi-walled CNTs that can be coated with Ag/AgCl to provide ionic-electronic transduction. The CNT brush-like structure is to penetrate the outer layers of the skin improving electrical contact as well as increae the contact surface area. In this paper, we report the results of the first tests of this concept -- immersion on saline solution and pig skin signal detection. These indicate performance on a par with state of the art research-oriented wet electrodes.
