The legacy of Manuel de Solà-Morales is extraordinarily important; without a doubt, his multifaceted work revitalized urbanism, creating new and enduring ways of understanding and conceiving the city.

For Manuel, urbanism was a question of ideas and their rigorous application to each specific reality. He saw urbanism as a social product and, as such, the object of complex, controversial political debate, in the framework of which he formulated strategies and projects that cast light on questions of urban space and social use of the agents involved. He proposed a certain autonomy as a guarantee that the city could be better.
