Auditori Forum & Agbar Tower : Barcelona

While visiting Barcelona I met with a local and we roamed around in Barcelona for a whole day on foot. I was taken to all sorts of places that are a bit off the beaten tourist track, but are very much part of Barcelona.  Agbar Tower, for example, is a tower Barcelonians love to hate, and you could easily see why this would be controversial. It’s suppose to look like a geyser rising into the air, but you don’t have to be Freud to see something else there, and the building has enjoyed lots of horrible nick-names. Next to it, BTW, is a shopping mall that offers a nice terrace of the Agbar area from above.

Moving on, we headed down to the pier, with yet another controversial landmark – the Forum Building, which served the 2004 Universal Forum of Cultures. It’s basically an exhibition hall surrounded by funky architecture, right next to a marina pier.

 

Lots to see and explore around Barcelona, and each piece of architecture has an interesting context and meaning.

 

Shall we take a walk through Barcelona?

Not the prettiest buildings but they have a back-story worth reading/hearing about. Join a local, and roam around Barcelona!
