Agbar Tower

Jean Nouvel (AJN) y Fermín Vázquez (b720 Arquitectos)


The tower is a skyscraper in Barcelona that stands out not so much for its height -not even in a city like Barcelona, with relatively low buildings-as for three of its characteristic aspects. The first of these is its characteristic shape, to which one could associate a thousand and one iconic references, from the mountain of Montserrat to Gaudi's architecture. The second one is the colour of the tower's skin and the third the visual vibration produced by the openings that perforate the external surface of the tower. In this sense, we may speak of the tower as a skyscraper, not so much as a building of great height as of a construction charged with characteristic references.
