Born in Barcelona, Jaume has loved walking through the city since he was very young. Discovering the most charming and unique places in his city, he found his passion and went on to earn a degree in architecture. He complemented his studies by participating in exchange programs at universities in Scotland and the United States. It was during these exchanges that he discovered another of his great passions: sharing his knowledge and learning from new cultures. After few years of working as a freelance architect, now he relishes the opportunity to lead walks as a Context docent.
Monica Cruz Guáqueta orginally studied Architecture at the Universidad de Los Andes, Colombia, and later specialized in the history of architecture in Barcelona. She has been living in Barcelona since 2002, when she came to study and fell in love with the city. After 14 years, a Masters degree and a PhD in history of architecture, she has become an expert in Barcelona’s architecture and, of course, Gaudí. She also combines this expertise with the knowledge of the city gained by being a permanent resident, along with her Catalan husband and daughters. She aims to give visitors a feel for what it's like to live in Barcelona and recommend places that you’ll enjoy away from the common tourist circuits. She has a wide knowledge of Catalan Modernism, as she was in charge of the Cátedra Gaudí archive -the most important documentary archive related to Gaudí’s architecture- for 12 years. She holds a Masters Degree from UPC and she is a PhD candidate at the same University. Her dissertation -currently in development- is about domestic interiors and design during the 19th-20th century transition, focused on Barcelona and Paris.
Daria is a Russian journalist who covers Barcelona and Catalonia for a range of Russian media outlets. She wrote her Bachelor’s thesis on the Catalan media, and as a journalist specialises on social issues and urban development. Her article on the radical 'superblocks' project that is transforming Barcelona has been read by over half a million people. While covering Barcelona, Daria has spoken to the city’s leading urban designers, the organizers of the 1992 Barcelona Olympics and even the last tenants of La Pedrera, thus helping her to accumulate an extensive knowledge of the city’s contemporary life and aspirations. However, Daria is forever biased about Barcelona: she first arrived in the city on the day of her 18th birthday and the Catalan capital has had a special place in her heart ever since. As a guide, Daria loves welcoming people to Barcelona, her one true urban love.
