‘Destination Architecture’


‘Destination Architecture’ is a feature essay published in Mark Magazine # 68 that looks at how a number of buildings completed in Barcelona since the 1990s have been specifically planned and constructed as tourist destinations. The essay is accompanied by an interview with Barcelona councillor for Architecture, Urban Landscape and Heritage Dani Mòdol, and an article by Francesc Muñoz titled ‘Tourism in the Age of Interchangeability.’ Photographs are by Sergio Pirrone.
