Barcelona

“Barcelona, perhaps more than any city in the world, feels as if it sprouted and grew from the earth beneath it. Its monumentally organic spaces, a pan-stylistic architecture from nature-inspired designers that run the gamut from Gaudí to Gehry, emphasizes curves, imperfection, and tactility rather than the mix 
of classical façades and rectilinear Modernist blocks of other European cities.”

Ahhhh, Barcelona. Her curves, her light, her willingness to pull you in and make you her own. A city as captivating as any I have traveled to and yet somehow distinctly its own. If only I had the exact words to explain what I meant, so instead I set out to capture this exact essence for  Need Supply on my recent trip there.

I wanted to find a way to visually show this push and pull that I felt while walking her streets. Nature becoming architecture. And architecture taking on a more organic form. This visual tension lends its self to a more care-free air. The overgrown lush greenery, and architecture with curves as if to mimic the air itself. I was utterly captivated by this wild and slightly eerie nature.
