SynopsisThe Torre Agbar looks like a rocket that is about to take off into space. A simple geometric gesture – and a design by the French architect Jean Nouvel. A skyscraper which seems to come out of the future. Its silhouette has dominated the cityscape of Barcelona since 2005.
Jean Nouvel designed a tower which seems to shoot up expressively. At night the Torre Agbar becomes a luminous work of art, a glowing fixed point in the pulsating metropolis. 4500 light-emitting diodes bathe it in artificial blue and red, visible from afar. The poetry of this nocturnal lighthouse dominates the whole city. The Torre Agbar has become an urban event which long since seems to be inseparably joined with Barcelona, by day and by night.
