Modern Barcelona.

I took a walk in Barcelona from El Maresma forum on the seaside till Placa de les Gloris. I made pictures of buildings along this route and in some streets on the left side.

The first building was the headoffice of Telefonica which I admired much.

Forum

The Forum Building (Catalan: Edifici Fòrum, ), also known as Museu Blau de les Ciències Naturals, is an architectural landmark in Barcelona designed by the Swiss architects Jacques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron .
The building is triangular in shape, measuring 180 metres on each side and 25 metres in height, located within the triangle formed by Diagonal Avenue, Rambla de Prim and the Ronda Litoral.

To the Entrance .

Illa de la Llume ( island of light )

This project forms part of one of the most important recent urban planning operations in Barcelona, the extension of the Diagonal all the way to the sea.
The vertiginous rise in the price of land has turned these promotions into exclusive areas, available to very few buyers and with a dubious wish of integration in the social and urban fabric.
architects : Lluis Collet & Ignacio Aparicio

Surroundings of Placa de les Glories.

Leaving metro station linea L4 then to the right.

The Torre Agbar is a 38-story skyscraper / tower located between Avinguda Diagonal and Carrer Badajoz, near Plaça de les Glòries Catalanes, which marks the gateway to the new technological district of Barcelona. It was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel The Torre Agbar is located in the Poblenou neighbourhood of Barcelona and is named after its owners, the Agbar Group, a holding company whose interests include the Barcelona water company Aigües de Barcelona.

Barcelona is really unfazed by modern architecture. That's great!
