This would help me a lot, so I can give a better approach of the city projects to you, as well as improve as a forum user.

Thank you very much once again, and keep reading !
Thank you for keeping the thread updated.

I wouldn't mind seeing some economic, demographic and political news about Barcelona now and then. I also wouldn't mind some nice pictures, to give a feeling to us who have never been, of what the city looks like from all sorts of angles.

One of the threads I follow with every update, good job.

Thank you very much for the suggestion ! I will try to implement these features every now and then, especially the "nice pictures", although there is already a forum thread for that:

The city of Barcelona, Spain

Regarding the economic, demographic or political news, that may be a more difficult thing for me, since there aren't many media channels that publish this kind of information unbiased and in english, which means I would have to translate the whole piece of news. I will do my research though, and if I fail in it, I will try to keep you updated with interesting news for certain future projects, trying to gather different sources so the information isn't biased.

A waterfall from Gaudí is going to be rebuilt in the Water Museum

Today the first stone for the reconstruction will be put. Works are directed by the architect Josep Vicenç Gómez Serrano.

The Agbar Water Museum of Cornellà will count with a jewel of modernisme: a waterfall designed by Antoni Gaudí. It is obviously not the original project, that was built in 1883 in order to refresh the garden of a summer house, known as Casa Vicens, in Barcelona, and was destroyed in 1945, but a reliable reconstruction.

‘El Borsí’ now belongs to the neighbourhood

A day full of excitement for local residents in the Gothic neighbourhood, who were able to visit the iconic Borsí building for the first time. The four floor building is located between Pl. Verònica and C/ Avinyó and has long been the subject of calls to turn it into a cultural and social venue. Once it is renovated, the building will house a new generation library and function as a place for people to access knowledge, education, technology and a space for neighbourhood participation.
