This project was inspired by the gridded streets of the L’Eixample section of Barcelona. I have to thank Annie over at Blunt Crayon because without her post I would have never discovered this gem. In her post she included some photos of this section of the city and when I saw it I instantly thought, “Letters!” and I knew I needed to create something. I used Google Earth and Google Maps to put together a composite and using unaltered building forms spelled out B A R C E L O N A. Do yourself a favor and take a tour of the city here.

Hope you enjoyed. As always, if you have any questions on how I did this or need advice on making your own, just holler! Thanks for reading and remember, today’s ideas become tomorrow realities.
