Barcelona, Edificio Forum
The City of Barcelona created a urban district, down by the sea, at the end of the Avenida Diagonal. At the heart of this area is the Edificio Forum (Forum Building, Edificio Fórum, Edifici Fòrum), which was completed May 2004. This triangular multi-functional building, with sides measuring 180 m, was designed by the architects Herzog & de Meuron.

The roof of the Edificio Forum is covered by a sheet of water. One vision was to transport the reflections on water onto the underside of the raised building.

28,000 different stainless steel panels were produced and fitted together, like a jigsaw puzzle, to form a continuous, 14,000 sqm embossed design.

The set shows shots, which were taken during the development and installation of the metal cladding and after the opening.
