Shapes of Barcelona
Shape Barcelona with no boundaries.
Not a mere decorative urban skyline, but an interactive way to make your own Shape of your city, this item is perfect for architecture and real-life miniatures.
Play with the standing silhouettes of the most iconic constructions in BCN, from the Sagrada Familia to the Camp Nou, by sliding them on a 5-lane wooden base to create a new perspective.
The pack includes 6 building pieces made in methacrylate, cut by laser, a combination that makes the outlines recognizable, sharply detailed, and resistant to time and use.
You can start representing the real Barcelona as it is, to then dare jumping into experimenting with depths and placement to make up a new skyline for the city. With Shapes, you get a great and precise diorama, and an unending urban scenario.
Other cities of the Shapes collection are: New York -- Madrid -- Paris -- London -- Bilbao
From nearest to farthest, oldest to newest, most known to to-discover... What architectural order are you going to pursue...?

Beyond the misty and natural Serra de Collserola, right on the verge of the Tibidabo, the city of Barcelona is born in your eyes, melting with the brightest sea. Barcelona... You are at the nest of Modernist architecture! It's easy to notice it on the Sagrada Familia, Arco de Triunfo, Design Hub and Torre Agbar - the first two made in the true era of the fresh-while-classic Modernism of Gaudí, Ildefons Cerdà, or José Vilaseca, and the second two because they are emblems of the modern, evergrowing Eastern Barcelona! From there but closer to the sea, the Hotel W, Hotel Arts and Torres Mapfre stand tall giving the best of views of Barceloneta, Ikaria, and beaches beyond, up to Montjuic, the Fundació Joan Miró, and Fundació Mies van der Rohe placed on the west side of the Catalan capital's coastline. After visiting this museums and at the feet of the curvy road by the Bauhaus School emblem, we had to represent the Plaza España and Monumento a Colón outlines together - they are actually close, connected with each other via the Avinguda Paral·lel. And you can tell that, now that you are around Sants and Les Corts districts, the Camp Nou, Torres La Caixa, and L'illa Diagonal all have a freshness in their design; it is the light of the Mediterranean coast, that wants to reflect on your façades and enter through your windows.
