Like Vienna, the City of Barcelona has also adopted gender-mainstreaming in its new urban design.

Again, this has resulted in widespread redesign, but the city also commissioned a completely new park at Plaça d’en Baró from the feminist architectural practice Equal Saree.

The park set out to be a feminist space and was designed in collaboration with the local children and a lot of the outcomes are very similar to those in Vienna, including the wide perimeter and the provision of different interconnecting areas rather than the focus being on everyone facing into a single football pitch.
