Abstract

Between 1990 and 2006 in Spain, municipalities with more than 10,000 inhabitants expanded by 58.28% in land area as a result of the housing bubble. This expansion provided the opportunity for an evolution in urban design practice, integrating a variety of theories about the city that had evolved separately during the
previous decades related to urban morphology, housing typology, density and attention to open space. The paper assesses these factors in an exemplar of this trend towards integration, which is the last major urban intervention that took place in Huesca before the financial crisis affected Spain: Padre Querbes neighbourhood.
