22@, Barcelona’s Innovation District

The Campus is located at the 22@ District. It was developed as an ambitious project to become the city’s hub for innovative technology companies.

This area was originally the center of the Catalan industrial revolution, but at the end of the 20th century, it was decided that the neighbourhood of Poblenou needed to be modernised. 

The area was developed to increase the city’s economic growth. That is why this part of Barcelona is also known as the technological district. After years of urban planning and constructing new buildings, the district is now home to many major company headquarters, and there are still plans for future growth.

About Barcelona

Mediterranean City

Barcelona is unequivocally a Mediterranean city, not only because of its geographic location but also and above all because of its history, tradition, and cultural influences. The documented history of the city dates back to the founding of a Roman colony on its soil in the second century B.C.

Capital of Catalonia

In a privileged position on the northeastern coast of the Iberian Peninsula and the shores of the Mediterranean, Barcelona is the capital of Catalonia.

There are two official languages spoken in Barcelona: Catalan, generally spoken in all of Catalonia, and Castillian Spanish. The city of Barcelona has a population of 1.510.000, but this number spirals to more than 4.000.000 if the outlying areas are also included.

Architecture

From Roman times to the Gothic period to the Catalan Art Nouveau, “modernisme,” Barcelona’s architecture naturally transmits the city’s rich history. It speaks for eras of varying prosperity and decline, for fervent Catalan nationalism or subjugation to the central government, for Expos, Olympic Games, Cultural Forums and more.

The two most important styles of Barcelona architecture are Catalan Gothic, a medieval style, and Modernisme, a turn of the 20th century movement protagonized by Antoni Gaudí.

Apart from the Middle Ages and Barcelona’s turn of the 20th century “Renaixença” (Catalan Renaissance), it’s well worth mentioning the city’s ancient remains.
