Spatial Appropriations by Migrants as Research Tool in Glòries Square, Barcelona.

Book Contribution - Book Chapter Conference Contribution

Glòries Square is an area under permanent transformation at the core of Barcelona. Moreover, it is a gray zone where marginal actors, alternative appropriations and underground processes find ephemeral favorable conditions to arise. They involve in large majority migrants that challenge the ways urban spaces are understand and managed, paradoxically becoming a research tool for understanding and embracing blurry urban processes emerging during extensive transformations. The article explores this paradox by studying their spatial practices of domesticity.
