This book is an idea of architects and friends Carles Llop, and Vicente Guallart, who were seduced by the way Barcelona is read by Jon Tugores' eyes. For the first time, the city is shown from the sea side, acknowledging the close relation of the city and the topography that encloses it. It somehow actualizes the drawings that imagined Barcelona done by the ancient navigators.

The main reason for this book is to offer another point of view the way Barcelona is read. A tribute to scale, territory, nature and architecture. A complete vision of the evolution of a city that knows how dialogue with mountains and the Mediterranean constraints. A magnificent example of well-understood urbanism that dealt with the Roman Empire all the way to the re-shaping of a car infested city during the post-Olympic era. Without falling into imported cliches from other continents. A city always under a constant re-thinking attitude.
