A 39-storey residential tower is planned to be built near the Hotel Arts Tower. A new ballroom and a three-storey office building have already been built in the tower.

A collaboration agreement has been signed for the Biopol l’Hospitalet and the Health Science Park of Hospitalet projects




Today, 10th October, a collaboration agreement has been signed for the Biopol l’Hospitalet and the Health Science Park of Hospitalet projects. This agreement is part of the BioRegion of Catalonia strategic plan. This new science park will facilitate relations between public and private sectors. It will also help knowledge and technology transference in health related fields.

This Health Science Park in Hospitalet will be the ideal environment for new technology companies and mixed public and private sector collaboration units. It will also facilitate research at the Biomedical Investigations Institute of Bellvitge (IDIBELL), where researchers from University Hospital of Bellvitge, University of Barcelona and Catalan Institute of Oncology (ICO) all come together.

A wide technology selection will supply this Science Park, where new setting-up companies will have also an incubation centre. Once these companies have settled, they will be able to consolidate their activity at the city’s Business Park.

The BioPol L’H project means also the University of Barcelona Health Campus expansion. It will have over 37,000 m2 of new buildings, which will foster research centres, such as the Catalonia Bioengineering Institute (IBEC) or even IDIBELL.

On the other hand, the project is also including the Bellvitge University Hospital expansion with over 56.000m2 of new buildings.

PALAU DE LA MÚSICA CATALANA, siempre me ha encantado este edificio

image hosted on flickr

The Palau de la Música Catalana (Palace of Catalan Music) is a concert hall designed in the Catalan modernista style by the architect Lluís Domènech i Montaner. It was built in Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain,
between 1905 and 1908 for the Orfeó Català, a choral society founded in 1891 that was a leading force in the Catalan cultural movement that came to be known as the Renaixença (Catalan Rebirth) (Benton
1986, 56; Fahr-Becker 2004, 199). It was inaugurated February 9, 1908.

The project was financed primarily by the society, but important financial contributions also were made by Barcelona's wealthy industrialists and bourgeoisie. The Palau won the architect an award from the
Barcelona City Council in 1909, given to the best building built during the previous year. Between 1982 and 1989, the building underwent extensive restoration, remodeling, and extension under the direction
of architects Oscar Tusquets and Carles Díaz (Carandell et al. 2006, 138). In 1997, the Palau de la Música Catalana was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site along with Hospital de Sant Pau. Today, more
than half a million people a year attend musical performances in the Palau that range from symphonic and chamber music to jazz and Cançó (Catalan song).

The design of the Palau is typical of Catalan modernism in that curves predominate over straight lines, dynamic shapes are preferred over static forms, and rich decoration that emphasizes floral and other
organic motifs is used extensively. In contrast to many other buildings built in the modernisme style, however, it must also be said that the design of the Palau is eminently rational. It pays strict attention to
function and makes full use of the most up-to-date materials and technologies available at the beginning of the 20th century (e.g., steel framing). As Benton (1986,58) has pointed out,"To eyes unaccustomed
to the architecture of Barcelona, the impression of a riot of ornament lacking any logic or control seems overwhelming. And yet the building follows exactly the exhortations of the [architectural] rationalists.
The structure, in brick and iron, is clearly expressed." Actually, its walls are the first example of curtain wall structures!

The wealthy citizens of Barcelona, who were becoming ever more sympathetic to the Renaixença at the time the Palau was built, asked its architect for building materials and techniques that symbolized the
Catalan national character. In response, he commissioned and gave great creative freedom to a variety of local artisans and craftsmen to produce the fabulous ornamentation, sculpture, and decorative
structural elements for which the Palau is famous.

Tibidabo


There is an amusement park, a telecommunications tower (Torre de Collserola), and a Catholic church, the Temple de Sagrat Cor, at the top, all of which are visible from most of the city. Designed by Enric Sagnier, the church took 60 years to construct and is topped by a sculpture of the Sacred Heart by Josep Miret Llopart. The Amusement park is the oldest in Barcelona and retains most of the original rides, some of which date to the turn of the 20th century.

Tibidabo can be reached by a funicular railway, by bus, and by car. The railway, built in 1901, was the first of its kind in Spain.


Origin of name

The name derives from the Latin Vulgate Bible verses:

"…et dixit illi haec tibi omnia dabo si cadens adoraveris me"[2] — "And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me" (Matthew 4:9);
"…et ait ei tibi dabo potestatem hanc universam et gloriam illorum quia mihi tradita sunt et cui volo do illa"[3] — "All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it" (Luke 4:6).
This phrase, meaning I will give to you, was said to Jesus by the devil as they looked down from an exceeding high mountain upon all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them. The name of Barcelona's hill thus refers to the popular tradition that it was in fact the exceedingly high mountain itself.
