I was being lazy to write my final post on Spain which was about Gaudi. Then I got an e-mail from National Geographic magazine which is featuring a great article about Sagra da Familia on the December issue. The article on “Gaudi’s Masterpiece” by Jeremy Berlin can be found here.

Francisco del Pozo Pares shared his work with ArkitecTrue. You will appreciate the detail work he has done.    If you haven’t look at the previous two entries, I highly recommend you to take a look at it.

“The Pool” to swim    One of my favorite rides in California is cruising along Pacific Coast Highway, from Los Angeles to San Francisco. It is a one day trip for us because we like to stop, take photos, and enjoy the view. One of these trips we decided to see the famous “Hearst Castle” near San Simeon, CA. The building, the view, the pool(s), the guest houses, the antiques… Everything is breathtaking, especially the outdoor pool.

Next stop in Spain is Valencia. It is an interesting city, located by the sea but not taking advantage of it. Old town was located inland and it does not flow to the sea shore, no direct connection, like in Barcelona, which will be the next post! Save the best for last… OK, back to Valencia. As someone who grew up in the warm water of Mediterranean Sea, I couldn’t help but go and check out the beach and surrounding. To my surprise, the buildings by the beach are neglected. Why not people are…

The Circle – Zurich Flughafen    I love my Flughafen, aka airport. Noooo, I am not crazy, or totally lost my mind. Keep reading please, and you will agree. Do you know how many times it saved my life on Sundays? No one wants to start the Sunday with a sentence such as “Ooppsss, no eggs for breakfast honey!” or “Ahhh there is no bread!” or “Did you drink up the whole orange juice”… I am not used to not having a close by market to go and get whatever is missing at home.

El Prado    After a week long art and architectural feast in Spain, I have a lot to share; from Goya to Picasso, from Santiago Calatrava to Antonio Gaudi!

Toledo was not in my list of must-see places. My dad, who is also an architect, convinced me to go there, see the architecture and spend at least a day there. If the daddy says you have to, then I have to go! The only regret I have is not spending enough time in Toledo. It is only 70 km south of Madrid which is half an hour by train and was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO in 1986. The old city is located on a mountaintop with a 150 degree view, surrounded on three sides by a bend in…

And here we are in our last stop in the great city of Barcelona! Where the palm trees grow freely, the architecture grows freely, and both of these put me in a good mood. As I was walking around and inside of the very famous architectural buildings, I couldn’t help but think of how advanced the architecture is in Spain.
