Drone photography captures Barcelona's architectural symmetry from above - architecture and design

Drone photography captures Barcelona's architectural symmetry from above



Hungarian photographer Márton Mogyorósy has used a drone to capture aerial shots of buildings around Barcelona, including Spanish architect Ricardo Bofill's Walden 7.
The photography series, called Barcelona from above, captures the Instagram-friendly symmetry of the city's architecture.
The Eixample district was masterplanned by pioneering engineer Ildefons Cerdà in the 1850s
"Walden 7 was always on my bucket list," Mogyorósy told Dezeen. "I've thousands of pictures from there on Instagram. Bofill's utopian vision is photogenic from everywhere."

Mogyorósy has been photographing using a drone since he was gifted a DJI Mavic Pro Quadcopter for his 18th birthday in 2018. Barcelona from above shows a side of the Catalonian capital that is rarely seen by the human eye. Photographs taken using a drone capture Barcelona's rigid geometry
The city expanded beyond its cramped medieval walls in the 19th century under the urban plan of engineer Ildefons Cerdà. He undertook a radical project to give residents wide streets, sunlight, and access to services regardless of wealth.
Mogyorósy's drone photos highlight the geometry of Cerdà's Eixample district, which is arranged in a neat grid with octagonal intersections. Chamfered corners on the block allow for better lines of visibility.
