Pic of the Day

Today, I walked by this crazy tower that is the hotel Porta Fira in Barcelona. It looks surreal and so futuristic. The Japanese architect Toyo Ito completed it a few years ago now. It was conceived as a distorted cylinder in which all rooms will have excellent views to the city. 
One of the most interesting aspects of the project is the fa├žade made of a system of red metal tubes placed at a certain inclination depending on solar exposure and orientation. At 110 meters-high, the tower is one of the tallest buildings in Barcelona and a new icon for its skyline. Barcelona still surprising us..
