Item description for Architecture Guide to Barcelona: 1860-2007 by Manuel Gausa, Marta Cervello, Maurici Pla & Ricardo Devesa...

This guide brings together the most interesting and important examples of modern and current architecture in Barcelona. It covers the emergence of Modernisme and Noucentisme, creative periods for which Barcelona is known the world over, the emblematic German Pavilion by Mies van der Rohe (1929), rationalist works conceived from the 1940s and 50s, large housing projects of the 70s, the Olympic architecture of the late eighties, post-Olympic architecture, and examples of the ongoing urban redefinition from the nineties. Each entry has a brief description that includes completion date, author, initial planning dates, address, a brief explanatory description, arrival information via public transport, and summaries of subsequent additions, restoration, alterations, or reconstruction information are highlighted by a graphic coding system. This updated edition features the most recent architectural production (until 2007), including landmarks such as the Agbar tower by Nouvel and the Herzog & de Meuron building, among other projects.
