Meet our Leading Walkers 5

Hi walkers!

Today we continue sharing with you some more personal details about our guides, Walkers!

All of them have something special to tell us, so we consider important to share with you!

We will close the presentation round about our guides with Miguel Angel.
He alongside his wife Elodie, have created Barcelona Architecture Walks 6 years ago.

Since then they have not stopped walking, inspiring and enjoing with all those who accompany them in this amazing walk.

My wife Elodie Grammont and I (MIEL Arquitectos) founded Barcelona Architecture Walks in 2010 to provide an outlet for our overwhelming desire to tell stories about architecture and delve into its many secrets.

We decided to take advantage of the unrivaled architectural heritage of our adopted city to start a conversation specifically about Architecture with a capital “A,” the profession that at once enthralls and disenchants us, and which has for some time suffered from a steady process of trivialization that has reduced it to nothing more than shapes, styles and names.

The best way to experience the city is by walking, because as you stroll, you’re constantly absorbing the reality around you and picking up on the rhythm of the city. In this process of surveying the city, your unconscious (that database/feeder of dreams and ideas) is jolted into action, giving you direct access to your own imagination and background history. It is in this precise moment that you are transformed and can grow and learn.

For the last three years, we have not been alone in our endeavors. We’ve been joined by a close-knit group of inquisitive architects who share the healthy conviction that if we could all just learn to talk about Architecture, we would make cities – and the planet – much more human.
