Col.legi d’Arquitectes de Catalunya: www.coac.net
Catalonian Architects’ Website with links to Barcelona Architecture + Architects

The e-architect website has been online since 2000, and many of the first pages were from this city. We were fortunate to do a house swap with a lovely member of Col.legi d’Arquitectes de Catalunya, for whom we had arranged some architectural tours in Scotland (Edinburgh and Glasgow) over a number of days.

Naturally amongst the first set of projects featured were buildings by Antoni Gaudi, Mies van Der Rohe, Norman Foster and Frank Gehry. Later this humble offering was augmented with works designed by lesser known architects.

I have been lucky to visit the city four times and on each visit find a few more architectural projects to visit, study and record. Like many others I find this major Catalan city to be one of my favourites in the world, and I hope to be able to return soon.

As well as offering architect office listings for the city we also offer architecture tours. These city walks are bespoke and cannot be joined – they have to be booked well in advance to allow our guides to prepare a suitable itinerary.
