Olympic Park (1992) from Hospitalet de Llobregat, 2014
In 1986 Barcelona was chosen as the place which had to organize the 1992 Olympic Games and, as in other moments in the past, it used the event to make large-scale changes in the city. The Games supposed a catalyst for a Barcelona that had just walked out of the Spanish Transition.

The Olympic effect was considered a success at first, and even today many other cities still take as an example the “Barcelona model”. In the early 2000s, however, this apparent success began to be questioned.
