The exhibition "Barcelona, Links" and its catalogue identify seven central hubs in the metropolitan city with problems of continuity that disrupt the eficiency of urban reality. The title includes a reference to the urbanistic discussion of the Barcelona of the early 1900s, which proposed a system to link the towns and villages in the Barcelona Plain (Jaussely's Plan). A contemporary viewpoint and academic papers explore possible alternatives to important issues for the city's future that look beyond local scope to connect with more complex systems and involve the city’s image and functions. The author suggests that this line of academic research could have positive outcomes if it is coordinated with present-day citizen participation, in keeping with the established tradition of studies at the Laboratori d'Urbanisme.
