Being global? The crisis and the virtual museums in public art and urban design



Public Art, Urban Design, Civic Participation, Urban Regeneration, Urban Governance


This work arises from the implementing experience developed in Barcelona, Zaragoza and Lisbon of the respective public art information systems of these cities and from research development projects made possible thanks to the projects BHA2002-00 520; HUM2005-00420; HUM2006-12 803-C02-01, HAR 2009-13989-C02-01,founded by the Science and Innvation Ministerior of Spain and the projects 2009SGR903 2005SGR00150 founded by the Generalitat de Catalunya, as well as the various agreements between the University and the city of Barcelona.
Surprisingly, in the international innovation landscape, are the projects in southern Europe, which for the first time present a systematic use of the Internet for better understanding and dissemination of this part of the heritage that is the city’s Public Art, a written history in bronze and stone forming part of the cultural heritage of the roots of identity and pride in city.
However, international crisis is a major halt to these projects and the possibility of developing a Virtual Museum of Public Art and Urban Design
