BCN 123


Fall 2017

Design in the City

This project began as a loose assignment for a Visual Culture seminar in Barcelona. I had been living there for 4 months at this point, so when the prompt was provided to visually characterize a Barcelona neighborhood, I couldn't settle for just one. I decided to convey Neighborhoods 1-3: Ciutat Vella (The Old City), L'Eixample, and Montjuic-Sants. I focused mostly on the first, as it is the one I spent the most time in (outside of Gracia, where I lived). The patterns that resulted were meant to be interpretations of my personal experiences in the neighborhoods, ex. skateboarders on the ramps at MACBA and our favorite place for sangria and snacks after class.
