I went on a site visit today to the placa Europa area just on the other side of Montjuic in l'Hospitalet, and on the way back I got lost, and ended up walking down gran via all the way to Placa Espanya. That translates in non-Barcelona terms to, a long f****** way. Anyways, here are some photos from my trip.
The new justice city by david chipperfield (we came in 2nd place apparently in the competition way back when, before I knew how to spell Barcelona)
The train to the airport near the hesperia tower.
obligatory photo of ikea
someone please comment on this post and tell me what building this is.
ditto for this one
and of course, the beatiful site photos of the torre habitatges gran via.
I was kind of looking for the habitat LED solar powered mesh hotel thing, but I had no luck. Have they even started building it yet? I could have sworn I saw a siteplan of it somewhere on the internet, and I walked right by where I thought it was, but alas, it wasn't. And to top it off I stepped in dog poop.
