Architecture in Barcelona

A student group Architecture visit to Barcelona will undoubtedly be framed in the works of Antoni Gaudi. The as yet still unfinished Sagrada Familia will certainly be a highlight but students of urban design will be interested in the Olympic legacy following the hugely successful Olympic Games which really put the capital of Catalonia on the map in 1992.

The city still benefits greatly from the infrastructural changes which were brought about by the significant investment into the city at that time.
