“A personal guide is not scientific; it’s about sharing information and experiences.
My training as an architect was closely related with discovering my city. Buildings under construction (in the far-off fifties), a great mass of stone near where I lived (that was Gaudí’s La Pedrera), forms, masses, constructions that impressed me then and still do, and that perhaps will impress someone experiencing them for the first time.
I also include places to experience nature in tension with the city, places to be, rather than objects to look at.
The city from the top as a form in three strips: the mountain, the plain, the sea. Green, brown, blue.”
