Office building located in the center of the Forum area in Barcelona. The building is 100 m high and consists of a nexus topped with three large post-stressed tensile support beams for the two upper lateral masses. This entire mass is double clad with glass as a curtain wall. The rest is clad with dry mounted plywood that includes the insulation supported directly by the building’s structure. Its four facades are clad, at different heights and with different materials and finishings like flamed, polished, and honed dark black granite, honed Travertine, and at the base flamed Rosa Porriño. All the off-cuts, despite their different designs, used Sistema Masa's PF-ALU/PL.
