Tower of Agbar

Tower of Agbar

Dear fans, friends and guests today we bring you information on the Agbar Tower.BARCELONA, Spain: The lights system of the new Agbar (Aguas de Barcelona) Tower is tested, 13 September 2005 before the building's inauguration by Spanish King Juan Carlos on Friday in Barcelona. Like Gaudi before him, French architect Jean Nouvel derived the form from the obtruded rock formations in the mountains of Montserrat, an hour north-west of Barcelona. However, he compares the organic shape to 'a geyser at a constant pressure'. The 35-storey, reinforced-concrete structure has a multicoloured facade that recreates the prismatic effects of a film of water. The cladding is made up of aluminium panels in 25 colours behind glass louvres. AFP PHOTO/LLUIS GENE. (Photo credit should read LLUIS GENE/AFP/Getty Images)

Located in the place of the Catalan Glorias, at the confluence of the Av. Diagonal, marks the gateway to the technology district known as 22 @ Barcelona.
It was designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, opened in 2005.

Is the third highest tower in the old city with its 144m high, after hotel Arts and Mapfre Tower located on the coast of the city.

It is one of the most modern skyscrapers of the city, has become a landmark building as the house batlló or quarry.

Lighting is one of its most striking and magical properties. As part of the night of Barcelona.
