What is the impact of tourist accommodations?

The project focuses on the impacts of tourism in the urban fabric, specifically, the phenomena of gentrification caused by peer to peer apartments.

We investigate the phenomenon at three levels: global tendencies (as reflected by Google Trends), a comparative diagnosis of the Airbnb offer in Europe’s main tourist destinations (Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, London, Madrid, Paris, Rome and Venice) and an atlas that depicts the situation in Madrid, focusing on economic pressure, land-use competition and resident vulnerability.

These materials served as the basis for a public conversation with experts and citizens to understand the causes and consequences of these transformations and predict and respond to citizens’ needs through urban planning.
