Retracing My Steps: Part 2 – Gaudi and 1 New Adventure | June 13, 2009

Got to Sagrada Familia early this morning to hike up the spires, which was pretty amazing. I can´t wait to come back when it´s finished, but even as it is, it gives you great views of the city and the ocean, as well as of the building itself.

An additional treat of the day was to forge our way up the metro to what we thought was a demolished archery range built for the olympics. Part of the complex isn´t there anymore, but the competition field is still there and has been turned into a soccer (futbol, whatever) field. It was designed by Miralles. The interesting thing to me was to see so many things that came forth in his later work, other than the fact that the thing is just amazing. Enjoy.
