      i like the forum as an equilateral triangle diagram of the barcelona city council, the catalan autonomous government and spanish government...

      what's the story with the FOA project?...when i was in barcelona it was closed for construction

      I have a few more images on flickr of the FOA park (portions that were open). i have a couple other shots that aren't online that suggest some parts were still incomplete...otherwise, i'm not sure. if Medit checks this post he may offer some insight...

      as far as I know the FOA park was finished for the Forum event in the summer of 2004.. I just remember that a couple of months before it opened, in the spring, they had some trouble with the pavement of and lots of those colored concrete pieces were broken.. I don't know what was the trouble with them..
      then after the Forum, in Sep 2004, they closed the whole area for more than half a year and re-opened gradually different zones...
      I think they had to change almost all the pavement of the FOA park but by spring-summer of 2005 it was opened again and they did the first post-Forum event, something called Primavera Festival (a music festival)...
