Steel-Town Makeover: Evaluating Urban Regeneration Policy in Sheffield and Bilbao.


ABSTRACT: The cities of Bilbao and Sheffield share a history of both boom times of steel production and hard times of industrial decline starting with the 1970s. Both cities proceeded to reinvent themselves through project-led regeneration programmes, of which the Guggenheim Museum became exemplary. Cultural policy was accompanied by a series of other urban regeneration strategies, dealing with economic and social aspects. The weight of these strategies differed in the two cases, and while Bilbao is the success story at the representational level, Sheffield has succeeded more in improving the social conditions of its residents.
