Barcelona Telecommunications Tower
The Barcelona Telecommunications Tower for Telefonica is 288m high, built on a hill just north of the city.
Elegant Hi-tech design, visible from huge swathes of the city.
There are not many examples of Hi-tech buildings in Spain (more a British phenomenon) and this is worth a trip if you are in the city for a few days, possibly combined with a visit to Park Guell (also in the north of the city but not as far out).

Nou Parc Barcelona Landscape Design
Converting the Barcelona football stadium into a 26-hectare park is the proposal of a smart office to renature the cities. The ON-A architecture studio opens the debate to the possible renaturation of urban areas to adapt to the needs of the post-covid future.

House in Sa Tuna, Begur
The assignment consisted in the construction of a guest pavilion as an extension of the main house. The first thought by Nordest Arquitectura was to create a shape clear and simple, a cuboid placed in the middle of the forest.

Deposit of King Martí in Barcelona

The idea was to find out what happened with the deposit of the King Martí, an old deposit of water retention in the original property of the tower and viaduct of Bellesguard, designed by Antoni Gaudí.
