TLA in Barcelona


Our practice development days extend our knowledge and understanding of other cultures and their response to public realm design. This year we visited parks and streetscapes in Barcelona, Spain. These sites included the renowned Parc Guell, Passeig de St Joan and a guided tour of the contemporary Botanic Gardens given by Maria Jover, one of the principal landscape architects. The gardens house species from the world Mediterranean planting zones and the design was developed in response to the slopes of the site, which also affords unrivalled views across the city.
