Création d'une ambiance - Le cas du Raval de Barcelone

Abstract : Through the analysis of the regeneration process carried out in the centre of Barcelona, this paper aims to explore the social production of an urban atmosphere. From an anthropological point of view, what we call an atmosphere is to be understood in the sense of the experienced dimension of the urban space. That means not something just "given" but, on the contrary, "made" through the people's practices and uses, which, in turn, are not necessarily always spontaneous, but also induced, domesticated, forbidden, etc ; in sum, they are a cultural construction that must be analysed sectioning all the social forces that compose it. The Raval's case in Barcelona, a slum reconverted in a symbol of the ethnic mix and the cultural fizz, is emblematic of how an atmosphere can be planned and constructed.
