1. Bottom-up planning in 22@ (BUP22@) is important because its goal is to establish a framework for a future urban design within the existing neighborhood fabric. BUP22@ will serve people, of different generations and from diverse backgrounds, who live in Poblenou. BUP22@ will: 1) enhance social interactions among community members; 2) give people more opportunities to learn about and enjoy nature; and 3) improve the connection of the neighborhood to the beach.
2. It is difficult to answer this question. The city of Barcelona, in my opinion, is a chaotic place. At the same time, however, the city is charming.

Demolishing an entire quarter of historical buildings in order new facilities to be erected, for instance, is something that I do not approve.
3. The applied method aims to create a parametric system with a certain percentage of open green spaces, residential, and business services, as well as to protect the historical buildings so as to preserve the cultural and historical identity of the neighborhood.
