‘barcelona modernista essential city guide’

 

 

barcelona modernista is a foldout map that uses the original illustration of the urban master plan of the
city as its main feature. the design includes the ‘expansion of barcelona’ by ildefons cerdà – a selection of
the 50 most important and representative modernist buildings and sites from 1860. the topography
today is almost identical to that of 150 years ago, with few but curious exceptions, becoming a journey
through time. the backside of the map includes a brief description of each building, photographs and a
detailed map of the main areas of the city.
