"When I was a student at the Barcelona School of Architecture (ETSAB), Barceloneta was the subject of much conversation. Restaurants on the beach which later disappeared... narrow streets, cramped flats, the clothes hanging out on the balconies, the shops, the artisans' workshops... and its people, who talked, and still talk, fast and loud. The project meant a chance to go back to the neighbourhood in an interested manner; it was no longer a trip down there for fun, to discover its people, its bars, its smell... but rather a survey of the place with the object of identifying what would enable us to reveal its qualities and to describe it accurately for the purposes of a project. An attempt, ultimately, to explain a reality, to offer a new and fuller meaning to an architectural project, beyond resolving a programme or commission." Text by the architect.

Naomi says:
One of the major fresh food market of Barcelona follows the Santa Catarina Market strategy: mixing singular and spectacular new architecture with a public program of an important social impact. The Barceloneta Market -located at the heart of the traditional, maritime neighborhood- has been rehabilitated after several years of decay. It was built in the late 19th century by architect Rovira i Trias. The iron roof and faįades were the most interesting features of the old market, so Miās -an ex-collaborator of Miralles- dismantled the old metallic structure and restored it, adding new parts, resulting in a multiple, fragmented roof. While Miralles' Santa Caterina is an explosion of color mixed with the warmth of wood and ceramic elements, Miās' Barceloneta has more darker and colder aesthetics, probably more fitting for the industrial character. The market has a series of solar panels on the roof, and a new underground parking is equipped with all kinds of modern services and facilities.
