URBAN PROPOSAL FOR THE CITY- PORT INTERFACE
The Barcelona City-Port interface is under continue transformation. The limit between the urban port and the industrial logistic area is under movement and is being continually displaced south, opposite to urban positions, in search for areas where to minimize conflict between urban and port activities. At the same time, physically constrained the city of Barcelona is in search for space to provide houses to new comers.
This proposal link port and urban interest through the creation of a continue slab that facilities logistic activities under while permits urban activities above, provide space to enlarge today’s straitjacketed transport infrastructures and solve the link between the city and the bigger park in town, Montjuïc.

HISTORY OF CONTEMPORARY DESIGN
CARLOTA CASANOVA: HISTORY OF CONTEMPORARY DESIGN
Carlota Casanova is an Associate Professor of Business and Design at EU Business School.
The course is designed to introduce students to the history of contemporary design by generating a historic, theoretical and conceptual timeline of major events and milestones that occurred in the 20th century until today.
Emphasis is placed on critical thinking based on the knowledge of historical facts in order to achieve a conceptual background that allows students to establish relationships between design chronology and society’s evolution.
The course starts with a very brief introduction on design origins, and then delves deeper into movements and cultural contexts that shaped design in the past century: the industrial revolution, the vanguards, the boom of mass media, the transgression of the form and the advent of the digital era. Finally, the course ends with a critical reflection on today’s design trends.
