Description

Valencia streets, buildings and ancient fortresses compose an urban landscape that becomes alive under the eye of the German architect Boris Strzelczyk, a lover of this light and water city.

Light, heat and colour:

Valencia old town is over 2,000 years old. It offers the chance to analyse the evolution of the urban network from the big architectural and city planning interventions during different ages. In old charts, it is drawn as an almond articulating the three power axles – politics, trade and religion. In order to access its secrets, the architect has designed a walk leading to exclusive and uncrowded inner spaces, to the food, considered by those who actually know the local products, to the streets and corners originally designed by the Arabs, to the water landscapes running through the city core, etc. This experience brings us closer to the wishes of those who, with love, built up Valentia, the Brave. Some searched for ostentation and built up the Lonja de los Mercaderes (Fish market), World Heritage. Farmers built up the central market, as a magnificent and colourful display of the wealth of the Valencian fields. Popes and bishops built layer over layer on the walls of the Cathedral, from the Middle Age to nowadays.

The professional’s look, proficient and sensitive, artistic and technical, brings us closer to a unique experience in Valencia and to feel why that light and colour has fascinated all cultures in the Iberian Peninsula along history.
