In Barcelona, everyone’s an architecture addict

I’m an architect addict and frequently write about Southern California architecture for the Los Angeles Times. So when I visited Barcelona for the first time, I was entranced with the eccentric array of buildings – beginning of course with the work of Antoni Gaudi.

Several of the buildings in this brief video line-up are located along Passeig de Gràcia, Barcelona’s trendiest street, in terms of architecture, commerce,  and shopping. The last image (which some have mistaken for Gaudi’s Sagrada Familia since I shot it in silhouette)  is  Barcelona’s cathedral, built during the 13th to 15th centuries.
