Texas A&M Students from Suzanne Strum´s Design Philosophy course were joined by BAC Japan students to take a walking tour through the 22@ district of Barcelona on Tuesday, March 19th. Formerly the industrial area of Poblenou, 22@ features many new and exciting works that have been completed since the approval of the districts planning phases in 2000. 22@ is also known as the innovation district, as it is quickly becoming the center for technology and business in Barcelona. Since 2002, the area has shown an increase of 42% in the number of businesses located in this district.
