    By David Morris
    Nov 13, '06 12:53 PM EST

    I got a free pass to Meeting Point this weekend, the big real estate convention in the Fira Barcelona at Placa Espanya. It was well worth going just to see how much money all the promotors spend on their stands and on the professional models of all the new catalunya construction projects. R+B had... View full entry

  • Barcelona Construction Photos - Justice City / Placa Europa / Random glass boxes and more

    Nov 9, '06 6:56 AM EST

    I went on a site visit today to the placa Europa area just on the other side of Montjuic in l'Hospitalet, and on the way back I got lost, and ended up walking down gran via all the way to Placa Espanya. That translates in non-Barcelona terms to, a long f****** way. Anyways, here are some photos... View full entry

  • I dropped the plate.

    By David Morris
    Nov 2, '06 6:22 PM EST

    I remember back in high school spanish class the day we learned how to tell someone you dropped a plate. You can say, "Se me cayó el plato," which roughly comes back into english as "The plate fell, but it certainlly wasn't my fault." I was thinking about it on my way to work this... View full entry

    Oct 25, '06 4:36 PM EST

    I saw the news post today about the jaume fuster library, I guess I'm a little late on that, but anyways, I took some photos of the library a while back in July. It's a really great building, but the space outside is just awful. In time I'm sure it can turn into something, and as long as they... View full entry

    Since I started creating the new web site for the office, I've been looking for the ultimate architecture project display engine for the web. I like the works page of Jean Nouvel, example, but it's completely inaccessible being put into flash like that. After hours of Google searches and no less... View full entry

    We just finished a competition at the office yesterday afternoon, and after seeing the elevation drawings that were produced, I was inspired to create the first ever javascript css Spanish building facade designer. It's still in the works, but it works well enough for now to try it out. *edit... View full entry

    Last night was the Corre Foc, part of the weekend of La Mercé. It was my first time to be a part of something so insane in Barcelona, but definitely my second time since i've been in spain this go-round.

    Sep 19, '06 9:24 AM EST

    What, you mean you haven't heard of InfoDomus magazine? It's only one of about a million Spanish AEC magazines. Yeah, so I hadn't heard of it either, but anyways, here it is. It's a staircase from a project of my boss from a few years ago. Maybe my next magazine cover will be, oh, a magazine that... View full entry

    I feel like I've learned so much already after having lived in Barcelona for only four months. I'd like to share some of what I've learned now. But only the most important things. I'll start with tech lingo. This one is quite a doozy, because it follows absolutely no standard whatsoever, and... View full entry

    Sep 9, '06 12:34 PM EST

    During the August vacation from work, I picked up a new hobby. Simply put, the idea is to go into any random hotel in the city with an extremely nice pool, preferably on a higher floor with a nice view of the city, act like you are staying there, and steal time in the recreation area. The first... View full entry

    This is by far the coolest disease I have ever seen or heard of. Living in a city like Barcelona, you can't help but wonder what is going on in the minds of all those extremely tan and wrinkled old ladies in torn up flowery sun-dresses who spend all their time picking stuff out of the garbage...

  • Notes for those considering buying the new Michael Meredith publication

    By David Morris
    Mar 8, '06 8:43 PM EST

    I'll make this as brief as possible. The publication by Michael Meredith is not a book. It's a piece of paper with a lot of small words written all over it. It's really well-written and has some great thoughts in it. But it's not a book, and it's not worth $20. There is a lack of scale in the... View full entry

    I've been trying to get this program called Parama to compile for days, and nothing seems to work. Has anyone out there heard of it? It's written by a guy from San Jose State I think, and it's basically a simpler version of Bentley's Generative Components. It's written in Python and has so many... View full entry
