Batlle i Roig tend to design convincent and solid designs, but they're normally either monochromatic or bicolour. In this case, we cannot tell much about the final palette, we'll have to wait and see

Airport of Barcelona: Runway asphalt renovation

Since 10/01/2017, and until begginings of February, the longest runway (7L/25R) of the Airport of Barcelona will be closed. There will be done tasks of replacement of the current asphalt of the 3.743m long runway.

While this is being done, only 2 runways will remain operational, reducing the max. amount of operations per hour, from 72/h to 48/h, according to Aena.

The total cost will be 18,7 milion euros, and around 1000 people will be working on the site.

While the take off (Enlairament) will still be done in the 7R/25L runway, mainly used for this kind of operations, the 2/20 will take the tasks of landing (Aterratge) aircrafts.

I give you some screenshots taken from the Tv3 news broadcast

GlÚries Park: CanÚpia Urbana (Winner proposal)

Last thursday we could get to know the changes applied to the new park that's going to transform the urban environment in GlÚries Square. Unfortunately, the city council has downgraded many of the features compiled in the first proposal.

In our local forums we agree that the final plan has poor ambition and leaves the project with almost no difference to other ordinary parks you may find in the city. The new proposal has been thought for the surrounding neighbours, but not for the whole city, and goes away of the original idea of GlÚries being the centre of Barcelona City.

Briefly summarizing, the main downgrades are:

- Tramway won't go through the park as part of the city council once declared; the tramway system main station will be in front of the Disseny Hub, making it easier to switch with the metro network, but increasing the tramway traffic in that particular area.

- Skywalker "Node" will be removed, as stated by the neighbours, who pressumably were against it. This consisted on an aerial walkway for people to reach the summit of the park and enjoy 360 degree views of the park and the city. Replacing the Skywalker node, an exotic garden will be put.

- Height reduction: All new buildings surrounding the square have been modified their max. height. The tallest building will be 19fl. / 60m

- More social housing and city equipments and no future office buildings nor private investment.

- Cost increased: from initial 30 milion euros to 42 milion euros.

- Replacement of some features with dog areas, Petanca (boule game) areas and associative market gardens. Reduced extension of the reflective lake in the middle of the park.

That's pretty much all, with other minor changes. I will leave you here renders from the first project and the current one.

Espai Bombers

Last november the new firefighter museum was opened in the old fire station of Poble Sec, built in 1929 for the International Expo. This new equipment will serve as a divulgative and formation centre, sharing the history of the firefighter department in Barcelona and fire prevention.

The total renovation cost was 3,2 milion euros, including 800.000 euros for the museum installation.

Is that a slab of blue Onyx placed as an art painting on the wall? If so, it looks extremely beautiful. The hotel looks very good I also love the baths.

I cannot really tell, but it looks like it. To really see notice if it's true or not, I would have to stay at the hotel Indeed, the hotel is quite nice, and the new facade really improves the beauty of the building !

hahahaha I'd also love to stay there just to see if it's onyx stone, or not.

By the way after scrolling the thread and its projects I gotta say Barcelona is one extremely beautiful city, all of the projects have so much class - world class, however that's no wonder to me, I always thought that the Spanish are the best architects, and they have so much care when it comes to aesthetics, like Santiago Calatrava is my most favorite architect and he has such a genius and creative mind.
Also the Sagrada FamŪlia has to be the most beautiful cathedral in whole Europe, if not even in the world.
I can only imagine how breathtaking it will look once finished, since it looks so great, so far. Kudos to the Spanish people.
