The processes of de-construction and re-construction of the Barceloneta market, an architectural project by Josep Mias. This market in the neighbourhood of la Barceloneta was one of the first covered markets built in Barcelona, It was 1884, and was constructed with a metal structure. It was partially destroyed by bombs during the Civil War. This recent remodelling is seen as a continuity of the old structure from 1884, and as a continuity of all the changes in this highly dense neighbourhood. The market seeks to form part of its urban fabric and Mis project is a clear example of integration. This book, richly illustrated, gives a comprehensive insight to the remodellation project.
