Last week we had the pleasure of taking part in a great experience alongside a very nice group pf students from Carleton University’s architecture school in Ottawa Canada. We are also delighted because Barcelona Architecture Walks has been a part of this amazing studio trip for five years in a row.
The first expedition was led by Ricard Pons, who took the group around the Gothic quarter ending up at the Olympic Village and 22@ district: A tour that reveals the origins of Barcelona and its most recent urban planning projects.
The second expedition took the group towards the town of Olot; on our BAW & RCR tour led by Jaume Prat. An amusing and thrilling tour to the most emblematic work of RCR Arquitectes, winners of the 2017Pritzker Prize.
We always enjoy walking with future colleagues like the students of Carleton University. They are an informed public that demands a we give a tour on a different level in terms of history, urban planning and architectural concepts in general.
