Perrolokos you should warn people that [email protected] project renders are not official. In any case, they look great

Yes, [email protected] was an idea for a new borough with offices, hotels and apartments in what is now the northern section of the cruiser and trading port. It was proposed by Xavier Trias, then the candidate for CiU and now the major of the city.
The project is only and idea to win votes, isn't official (is not a City Hall's project) and won't be released in this period of office and, with much certainty, nor in the next one.
Someday something will be done in that area, probably with some hotels, offices and, maybe, apartments, but in this context of crisis there are other priorities now, besides other urban projects being developed right now (Torres i Bages, Sagrera, [email protected], Marina del Prat Vermell...) that will need years to be completed. When these projects are finished, and only if it's really necessary and worth it, we'll do something in that area of the port.

Una cosa es que se haga , pero los renders del proyecto los presento antes de estas elecciones .
Yo personalmente creo que es un proyecto que se aparcara durante varios años ya que hay muchos proyectos en marcha o por empezar en otras zonas , cuando vuelvan a salir noticias en un futuro seguramente seran otros reders ....

What I'm saying is that you should explain those things to the other forumers. Not just upload images without any explanation moreover when this is not an approved project.

Red hot hotel scores first prize



Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas wins Emporis Skyscraper Award for twisted scarlet Porta Fira Hotel

Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas, FCC, the Spain-based infrastructure and environmental services company, has won the Emporis Skyscraper Award 2010 for its construction of the Porta Fira Hotel in Barcelona. The building was chosen from over 300 skyscrapers around the world.

The Emporis Award for the Best New Skyscraper is one of the world's most renowned prizes for high-rise architecture with a jury made up of architecture experts from 67 countries. Previous winners include Norman Foster’s 30 St Mary Axe (‘The Gherkin’) in London and Santiago Calatrava’s Turning Torso in Malmö, Sweden.

According to the jury, Porta Fira tower was chosen for its aesthetic beauty and urban integration. Dubai’s Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest skyscraper, came second place in this year's awards. In third place was CMA CGM Tower, a 147m tall skyscraper in Marseille, France.

Hotel Porta Fira was designed by the Japanese architecture firm Toyo Ito & Associates and the Spanish firm b720 Fermín Vázquez Arquitectos. The 26-floor hotel tower is 113m-high and is located in one of Barcelona's busiest areas. Porta Fira belongs to the Hoteles Santos chain, which also owns several other landmark hotels.

According to Fermín Vázquez, the greatest challenge in designing the tower was its shape. The unique façade is made up of aluminium tubular structures that run vertically around the entire exterior, from the ground to the crown. The hotel is visible from a distance due to its striking red colour and its tube-like structure widens as it rises. b720 Arquitectos also designed the Agbar Tower in Barcelona, which came second in the Emporis Skyscraper Awards in 2004.

In addition to the Porta Fira Hotel, another FCC project was ranked in this year's Emporis Skyscraper Awards. FCC’s Diagonal ZeroZero Tower in Barcelona took ninth place. The tower, which was designed by EMBA (Estudi Massip-Bosch Arquitectes), is home to Telefónica's headquarters in Barcelona. This 25-storey diamond-shaped skyscraper is 110 metres tall and has received several other awards including the Quatrium Prize for architecture in 2010.
