A Weird And Wonderful Guide To Barcelona

Designed by Folch Studio and edited by Kati Krause, the second edition of the Weird and Wonderful Guide to Barcelona was completely revised to make a visit to the city even more captivating. Ordered by hours, it features hundreds of little secrets for the reader to discover while strolling the streets of Barcelona - be it a place for Spanish brunch, a secret garden or a nighttime spa. Additionally, it also contains a detailed directory with maps, for moments of need and hurry. Away from the tourist trails, this book more than ever invites you to experience Barcelona as if you'd lived there for years. It is a declaration of unwavering love for a city that is constantly changing, yet never disappoints. Published November 2010.

A smart Guide to Utopia

How can we make our cities better? To answer this question, Barcelona publishing company LECOOL brought out a travel guide to a better city: A smart Guide to Utopia. Edited by Kati Krause and design by Onlab. The book, inspired by automotive company smart, the expert in urban mobility, presents 111 projects from across Europe that have made a positive, sustainable change to life in our cities. The projects range from urban farming to pop-up restaurants to sustainable design. In the book, over 30 renowned writers and creative minds like Ben Hammersley, Maria Popova and Adam Greenfield have provided answers to this question. They have contributed ideas, projects and initiatives that are presented in five separate chapters: "Live", "Eat & Drink", "Buy", "Play" and "Work". In the "open your mind" rubric at the start of each chapter, one visionary shares his or her ideas for the future of the city. The smart Guide to Utopia thus takes readers on a unique urban voyage of discovery.
