Какво ще правите

* This expedition was listed as one of the world’s top five architecture tours by The Sydney Morning Herald.

Along the Modernist Route, you will see the most important buildings of Barcelona through the perspective of a passionate architect. We will trace for you the sinuous dream path that took Antoni Gaudí from his social concerns to a total absorption with the divine, until he finally became “the last great cathedral builder.”

My aim is to delve into the architectural essence of the Master and dig deep into his visual power, which is what made him an inspiration for the Surrealists and has earned him the honor of being the Best-Known Spanish Architect.

Our discussion will focus on a set of turning points that include a project in early 20th-century Manhattan, the last commission from his patron, Eusebi Güell, and his first architectural steps with the Sagrada Família.

I will explain you about eclecticism and the end of modernism, the Crypt of Colony Güell and the Sagrada Família, utopian socialism, positivist materialism, the intellectual bourgeoisie, the Spanish Civil War, anarchism, beatification and deliquescent surfaces.
Other things to note

Hi I'm Miguel Angel and I founded Barcelona Architecture Walks in 2010 to provide an outlet for my overwhelming desire to tell stories about architecture and delve into its many secrets. All the guides of Barcelona Architecture Walks are practicing architects, most of whom are professors of architecture, as well as architecture critics and we all have a wry smile on our faces because… we love architecture!

Your sherpas for this expedition would be:

Jelena, a PHD architect from Belgrade, researcher, writer and professor at several BCN Universities.
Rafael, practicing architect from Montreal , an architecture critic, writer at AR magazine and professor at the BAC.
Pia, professor of architecture technology and an artist obssessed with drawing and watercolor painting.
Cristina, architect from Barcelona and Helsinki where she guided also.

Къде ще бъдете

You will see amazing examples of the Modernisme period as the Antoni Tàpies Foundation and Casa Lleó Morera by Domènech i Montaner and Casa Amatller by Puig i Cadafalch, some hidden Eixample courtyards and, of course, the 3 main residential buildings designed by Antoni Gaudi: Casa Calvet, Casa Batlló and Casa Milà. We don’t go inside the buildings.

Pia was my guide for the tour. I had read other positive reviews so as soon she introduced herself I expected a good tour. It wasn’t just good, it was great! She is very knowledgeable and she transmits her passion for architecture in her descriptions and explanations. I hadn’t expected the historical information up to the time of Gaudí but I appreciated it and learned a lot. It definitely gave me a more complete understanding of the city. I was alone on the tour so it was a very enjoyable and personal experience. I definitely recommend this tour to anyone with curiosity about one of the great figures of Catalan architecture and a desire to see more of this interesting city.

Good tour to get a sense of Guadi's place in time and a bit of the history of Barcelona from an architectural perspective.

Pía was an amazing host with a wealth of knowledge about Barcelona's history and architecture, and even other topics like linguistics. We felt like we were constantly learning something new! Loved being able to hear not just about Gaudi but the development of Barcelona as a whole and the evolution of Gaudi's style and structural approach. Highly highly recommend this tour!

We had an eye opening tour of Gaudi's Barcelona that taught us a lot about the history of the city as well as Gaudi's architecture. Our guide was very generous with her time and answering our questions. It was the perfect introduction for us to then go on and look inside some of Gaudi's buildings ourselves carrying this knowledge with us. Thank you!
