    This course wants to explain the History and the evolution of the City of Barcelona. The perspective used will be that of Urbanism, Politics and Society, understanding them as the result of the same historical process. Architecture will be treated when necessary, like studying Modernisme or Noucentisme. As well as studying the evolution of the City of Barcelona students will compare this city to other realities and cities like Madrid, Paris, London, Moscow, New York or Washington DC. This class is aimed at all students who want to understand the elements that build a city but also at those who consider important the city of Barcelona specifically.
