Silence is Grey in Barceloneta Sea, Barcelona, Spain
My work explains the fascinating and tense point where the city and the sea and the city and the mountains converge. Trying to show, in a far from forward way, Barcelona’s branding. It’s a calm look, like the one of a tree or a stone.
Architect, publicist, photographer
Understanding. Not just for the pleasure to gather knowledge but to walk the road. I’m also interested on returning again and again to the same subjects, as an only guaranty to get the whole truth, to the point of obsession. And the beauty. Even the beauty in the small things. And the beauty of ugliness.
Barcelona has sea and mountains just five minutes from downtown. It is both feminine and masculine. Sometimes very natural, sometimes very artificial. It has a great concern for architecture and design.
A cloudy day. Cloudy days are unpredictable, like a partner you never fully get to know. My project, “Silence is Grey,” was built because of that fascination.
It is an inspiring city, full of cultural activities, beautiful places, and a very comfortable place to live. And the Boqueria Market.
Sometimes excessive tourism it’s unbearable… souvenir shops and pickpockets.
The character of its neighborhoods: Raval, Gothic, Born, Gracia, Poble sec, Poble Nou, etc. Each has its own charisma. You would like to live a lifetime in each of them.
A perfect mix between Jean Luc Godard and Raffaella Carrà. Because it has a deep and exhibitionistic dimensions at the same time.
If I had to choose, I would say photographers Roni Horn, Martin Parr and William Eggleston, architects John Pawson and Alvaro Siza, and electronic musicians Ryuichi Sakamoto, Blixa Bargled and Max Richter. And many other, less known, that you sometimes meet in a bar or on the street. There are many amazing people out there.
