In Barcelona you will find buildings spanning all eras of the city’s 2000 years old history: The oldest date back to the time of the Romans, there are buildings from the Gothic period, the Catalan art nouveau (el Modernisme) and imposing modern buildings. Many of them are famous landmarks and real tourist attractions. Some of them made Catalonian architects famous far beyond the Spanish borders. In the modern era, especially the Olympic Games in 1992 led to the construction of many modern and beautiful buildings. The city managed to liberate itself from the dreariness of the Franco era and continue with its tradition of creativity, known from the Modernisme, blended with modern styles. Some of the buildings are quite disputed – but that makes the charm of it.


Architecture College Trip to Barcelona

Barcelona is highly regarded by most as being the cultural heart of Spain thanks to its impressive landmarks and amazing architecture which the city is renowned for, making it perfect for an educational architecture trip. Antoni Gaudí was born in Reus in 1852 and received his Architectural degree in 1878. Gaudí’s work is admired by architects around the World as being one of the most unique and distinctive architectural styles. His work has greatly influenced the face of Barcelona architecture and you will see stunning examples of Gaudí’s work all around the city centre.  Gaudí adorned many of his buildings with coloured tiles arranged in mosaic patterns. This adds another important dimension to his buildings which is so often overlooked by architects – the use of colour. The combination of original design, interesting shaped stonework, and vibrant colours in Gaudí’s work give the viewer a truly breathtaking visual experience.

Park Güell

The shimmering silver Cayan Tower is not your typical skyscraper. This clever example of engineering twists 90 degrees as it rises. Each of the 75 floors in this luxury apartment building is rotated by 1.2 degrees to create its distinctive helix shape. It was designed by the same architectural firm behind Burj Khalifa, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, in collaboration with local specialists Khatib & Alami Dubai. Here's a tip straight from local photographers: you'll get the best views of the striking structure in its entirety across the water at Marina Walk. Head over at sunset for that inimitable golden glow.
