Don’t think of us guides. Think of us as friends in Barcelona for a day. At Barcelona Design Tours, we like to keep things chatty and informal as we walk around introducing you to the city’s art, architecture and design.
Looking forward to meeting you in person, but in the meantime here is a bit more about us.
Brian Gallagher is an RIAI registered architect who first came to Barcelona in 1991 in order to complete his studies. He received his Masters M Metropolis from the UPC in 1996 under the director Ignasi de Solà-Morales. As well as a practicing architect he is the co-founder of B-Guided magazine a food, fashion, lifestyle and visual arts publication that, since 1999, has focused on emerging cultural projects in Barcelona.
Suzanne Wales is an Australian journalist who as a teenager pinned up photos of Gaudí’s architecture onto her bedroom wall. She moved here in 1992, and started to write about the arts and culture scene in her adopted home. She is a regular contributor to Dwell, Frame Magazine, Wallpaper* and other design publications, and is still constantly bowled over by Barcelona’s visual richness. She spends most of her free time poking around Barcelona’s independent boutiques and flea markets, and likes nothing more than discovering wearable clogs in old ladies shoe shops.
