Placa de Merce Sala, with old factories converted into apartment buildings and offices, in the El Poblenou district of Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain. The industrial neighbourhood fell into decline after the Industrial Revolution, and has recently been redeveloped, triggered by the Olympic Games of 1992, resulting in a vibrant, young and artistic community.
