Product information "Barcelona Architecture & Design"

BARCELONA ARCHITECTURE & DESIGN presents the image of a city which has developed a perfect showcase for architecture, design and art. This is where world famous contemporary architects such as Norman Foster and Frank O. Gehry have left their mark with spectacular constructions, adjacent to the Pedrera and the Sagrada Familia. The coexistence of traditional and modern in Barcelona are exemplary and trendsetting for many other cities. Since the 1990?s, Barcelona has seen dramatic urban changes. International architects were drawn to the country when the Olympic Games in 1992 led to numerous challenging urban rearrangements. With the architects being able to realise their concepts, Barcelona became worldwide competitive. This made Barcelona to one of the most exiting and high contrast cities in the world.

The Universal Forum of Cultures 2004 is another important development that led to the rediscovery of an almost forgotten quarter of the city: the coastal region by the river Besòs. With sufficient building area available for the cultural event, international architects were once again assigned to this project. For them to work alongside native architects was an additional enrichment. This is how Barcelona became groundbreaking in contemporary urban development - exemplary solutions for a contemporary life style were found both in exterior and interior design.
