Neighborhood: Olympic Port

This neighborhood was built as part of an urban expansion project in preparation for the 1992 Olympic Games. It served first as the Olympic Village where the competing athletes lived and it has now become a full fledged residential neighborhood. The architects (Mackay, Martorell, Bohigues and Puigdomènech) included green spaces amidst the housing and communications infrastructure. The city's only two skyscrapers are located here: the Mapfre Tower and the Arts Barcelona.
