MADRID - Oriol Bohigas, a Spanish architect and urban planner who helped make Barcelona, his hometown, one of the main tourist destinations in the Mediterranean, died in his home there on November 30th. Mr. Bohigas worked for the Barcelona city government and was one of the masterminds behind the renovation of the city in preparation for the 1992 Olympics, particularly the redesign of the coast that had become an abandoned industrial area. The city rehabilitated nearly three miles of the coast as beaches, and the area became a popular residential area after the Games ended.
