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.

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
