HERCE, Manuel. Urbanización, precios del suelo y modelo territorial: la evolución reciente del área metropolitana de Barcelona. EURE (Santiago) [online]. 2005, vol.31, n.93, pp.35-51. ISSN 0250-7161.

In European metropolitan areas, the development of networked infrastructures (mainly transport ones) is favouring the widening of urban growth business to much wider territorial areas. In such areas some processes of functional and socio-economic specialization are taking place simultaneously. This paper provides significant data on the accesibility changes produced in the metropolitan area of Barcelona and their correlation with urban growth and activities situation (bringing out the relationship between urbanizing pace and housing and land price increase). Likewise it identifies the appearing of new centrality and social specialization areas. The paper especially alerts on the generating of high-rental self-segregational areas connected by means of high-priced tolls, as well as geographical enclaves with potential marginality associated to retired population moving to old second residence areas

Keywords : accessibility; connectivity to network; situation factors; urban development; land prices.
