Barcelona: On the Road Architectural Guides, Paperback / softback Book

Barcelona: On the Road Architectural Guides Paperback / softback

Edited by Chiara Ingrosso

Part of the On the Road series

Description

When we think of Barcelona, the eclectic art of Antoni Gaudi immediately springs to mind.

It is present in every corner of the city. Or we think of the Olympic Ring with the tower designed by Santiago Calatrava; but these are only two aspects of the exquisite beauty of the Catalan capital which has been able to blend old and new in a unique and unpredictable way.

The traditional Gothic architecture has a discreet historical flavour, while the buildings that have appeared in the past 10 years reflect modern art trends like Cubism, Neo-plasticism, and Futurism.

Named the European capital of innovation in 2014, the city boasts extremely distinctive urban planning because of the unusual bevelled corners on city blocks that provide more open street intersections, with extra space for outdoor cafes and seating, that give the city its particularly sociable community atmosphere.
