Abstract

The objective of this investigation is to make a first approach to the La Prosperitat neighbourhood (Nou Barris) in the context of the confinement in the time of COVID19, which forces us to reconsider the work processes and approach mechanisms in an untouchable territory.


Using the Google Earth tool and diverse platforms will provide us with virtual information about the city, out accessing possibilities and limitations in a neighbourhood that can only be visited from the screen.


The analysis from La Prosperitat presents its territorial and context limitations, its evolution over time, its main socio-economic characteristics, its relationship with urban policies and programs, its connectivity and public space highlighting the main interventions carried out in it.
