Spain - Barcelona - Forum skylight - sq

Hot off the press, this is one of my favourite images from my photographic trip to Barcelona last weekend. It's taken looking up one of the lightwells to Herzog & de Meuron's extraordinary Forum building. Completed in 2004, sadly the building seemed rather disused and neglected.

 

It's going to take me a while to edit and post process the 1200 photos so it might be a while before I post some more from the trip but I thought I'd post this as a bit of a teaser.

 

From Wikipedia : "The Forum Building, designed by the Swiss architects Jaques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron (Herzog & de Meuron), is an architectural landmark in Barcelona. The building is triangular in shape, measuring 180 meters on each side and 25 meters in height, located within the triangle formed by Diagonal Avenue, Rambla de Prim and the Ronda Litoral."
