Það sem verður gert

The keys to understand architecture easily.


Have you ever felt overwhelmed by the beauties surrounding you during your daily life ? This amazing cathedral in the center of the city, you don't know anything about ? This building you are seeing over and over again without having any clue of when it was built ? Why it was built this way ?

We are all surrounded by amazing work of arts but unable to read them, to understand them. An anonymous space through which we don't know anything about. What is the solution ?

I will give you the main keys on how to read architecture yourself, the main styles of the city and how to decrypt them yourself, long after the end of the visit. Architecture will slowly become a game for you, an investigation in your free time, a new taste I will help you to acquire throughout Madrid !

Other things to note
This tour is delivered in three languages. If you want to know what language is spoken in a slot, please contact me !

We will be walking in the street of Madrid during three hours, please be sure to be in a healthy condition for a three hours walk.
Please, be sure to arrive on time at the meeting point.

This is one of the best Airbnb experiences we have done. Kevin not only helped us understand architecture in Madrid, but contextualized it in the history of architecture and even gave us nifty worksheets and guides that will help us understand buildings wherever we are. The tour was scattered with great stories and examined the role of architecture in out society. At the end of the tour, we grabbed some drinks as a group to spend extra time together and get to know each other. Great option for anyone interested in architecture, art and history.

Kevin was great! He customized the tour on the fly and teaches while story telling. He also presents things in a unique way that allows you to consider things outside of the tour. On top of great story telling Kevin is very cognizant of needs an ensures you have the ability to stop for drinks and the bathroom as needed. Would highly recommend Kevin and would gladly take another tour with him!

Kevin is fantastic. We learned so much first just about architecture, and then very specific information about the architecture and history of Madrid. The tour is very thorough and detailed, and Kevin really makes it interesting and fun with his bubbly and engaging personality and observations. Our group thoroughly enjoyed this tour.

This was without a doubt the best tour I have been on. It was so much more than simply a tour of Madrid’s architectural highlights - it was a well curated immersive lesson on how to read Western historical architecture. If you love looking at old buildings but don’t know your Baroque from your Renaissance (like me), this tour is for you. Equally, if you do have your history of architecture nailed, Kevin has so many interesting insights into the socio political context in which architectural styles were employed, both in Madrid and elsewhere, that you will be kept no less entertained and engaged. I wish Kevin was in every city.

Kevin was prompt and at the meeting point as expected. His English was brilliant and his story-telling added a good sense of humour to the subject. Kevin was well prepared and gave us a quiz to complete during the tour which ensured that we paid attention (ha ha) but more importantly, we had reference material to assist us in the future. Personally, I could have spent a whole day with Kevin to learn a 10th of what he knows and shares with his students. This is not a bland guided tour showing you many buildings but a sharing of knowledge to enable a clearer understanding of how and why the various building constructions have developed over the ages. The construction of Madrid over the ages is skilfully handed by Kevin - this tour is a real treasure (as is Kevin!)
