“Once it is built, inhabited, and part of a living city, architecture takes on a life of its own, sometimes becoming something that was never foreseen. Barcelona itself has undergone many transformations throughout its history, including a recent post-industrial change into a global tourism brand that is based, in large part, on its built patrimony. My interest lies in how architecture affects and is in turn affected by societal change.”
