MODERN AND CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE TOUR OF BARCELONA
CONTEMPORARY ARCHITECTURE BUILDINGS IN BARCELONA
The New Barcelona
Are you a contemporary architecture fan? Have you heard that top contemporary architects have been building a new Barcelona these last years and don’t want to miss them? Are you ready to go beyond the Gaudi sites and discover what’s new in the local architecture scene? Or maybe are you interested in urban development and how Barcelona is integrating sustainability values in its districts and architectural projects?
From the Olympic Games in 1992, Barcelona has been inviting world famous architects to embellish the city and equip it with modern facilities, contributing to create a fascinating modern and contemporary landscape in the city… But their works aren’t usually too centrally located: you need to go out of the beaten track and do some research to find their locations. If you don’t have the time to do all this planning and want to take the most out of your short time in Barcelona but still see as much architecture as possible, then leave it in our hands!
If architecture is your passion and names such as Arata Isozaki, Jean Nouvel, Frank Gehry, Jacques Herzon, Miralles and Richard Rogers are definitely not strange to you, come with us exploring the latest architecture that is transforming Barcelona now, and discovering who are the Spanish emergent architecture promises! And if you are curious about sustainable architecture and urban planning, don’t miss our walking itinerary option.

TAILOR THIS TOUR TO YOUR UNIQUE NEEDS
These tours have been created for people who has a strong interest in contemporary architecture and that are happy to devote a whole morning exploring the New Barcelona.
If you are traveling with kids, this tour is not really child friendly because they are likely to get bored (but we can make a break for them at the park playgrounds of the walking itinerary). Instead, teens and young adults that are considering an architecture or design career might find it interesting.
If you have walking issues, the walking itinerary will be too tough for you but it can be done with a driver if necessary too.
If you use a wheelchair, both itineraries are wheelchair-friendly.
If you’d rather spend a whole day touring, ask us to combine both itineraries in a full day tour.
