Architecture in Barcelona

Architecture in Barcelona

The architecture in Barcelona it's not alone Gaudi or Luis Montaner. Architects from all over the world come to Barcelona to see examples of modern architecture. And to create this informative text, I had to read many sources and be investigating all this with my eyes.

Perhaps the influence of Gaudi it is not always visible in modern style architecture, but it is always noticed and taken into account in the use of the colors of the imagination. And it is not surprising that the architects who design buildings for Barcelona risk more using bright colors than if they were building in other provinces or cities. Well, it's not surprising, because after so many years, the style of Gaudi has become the basic design in Barcelona.

And also the question of why architects use the style of Gaudi can be easily answered... Gaudi's style helps even the most conservative architects overcome their shyness.

And how did you develop? Gaudi that style? Well, it is most likely that he was influenced by natural images, because most of his works are based on organic forms found in nature. If you visit the Sagrada Familia Museumyou will learn a lot about how Gaudi he used natural images to form the basis of his creations.

Why is Barcelona so popular with tourists?

Architects often praise the distribution of Barcelona. As you walk through the city, you will notice that the corners of the buildings are chamfered; this is called a "cut edge." This means that intersections are more spacious and there is room for terraces on street corners. This gives Barcelona an atmosphere of friendship and community.

The center part of Barcelona can be divided into three main parts. The Old Quarter or Gothic Quarter (Gothic Quarter), from which the Barcelona. The area is characterized by winding old streets and tall, dark buildings. The Raval area, which extended the original old town, and finally the Eixample, a large ordered "grid" area attached to the old town. Each area has its own unique and distinctive character.

And, well, the best way to prove what has been said, is to give some examples of some of the most popular places in Barcelona.

first place is Agbar Tower

The tower was designed by architect Jean Nouvelle in collaboration with the firm b720 Fermin Vazquez Architects. Construction, as explained by Nouvel himself, was strongly influenced by some of the most representative symbols of Catalan culture.

The second work is not popular only in Barcelona , but in all of Spain, it is the Holy Family that its construction began in 1882 (it is still under construction). It is the masterpiece of Gaudi and the maximum exponent of Catalan modernist architecture. It is one of the most visited monuments in Spain, along with the Prado Museum and the Alhambra in Granada, and is the most visited church in Europe after St. Peter's Basilica in the Vatican.When completed, it will be the tallest Christian church in the world.

Santiago Calatrava is from Valencia and one of the most famous architects in Spain. He also created a science park in Valencia. According to his words, he was inspired by the skeletons of animals and the way they move in most of his work.

Well, that way I can explain a long time, since in Barcelona there are many famous and beautiful places.
