Gaudi & Barcelona

Leave a comment

If you’re in Barcelona, and have an interest in architecture, then you’ll be hunting down the Gaudi buildings.
Paul Downton, Architect and director of Ecopolis did exactly that. We invited him to share some thoughts (and slides) with us.

 

Australian architect, writer, artist and urban evolutionary, Paul has been called a ‘father of the ecocity movement’ and sees ecocities as an evolutionary adventure. His best known built project is Christie Walk, in Adelaide. Author of “Ecopolis – architecture and cities for a changing climate” (2009), Paul is working on “The Fractal Handbook for Urban Evolutionaries” and a series of graphic novels “The Wild Cities of Half Earth”. He is impatient and frustrated by mainstream architecture and planning and would prefer to be living in a more Gaudi-esque world.
