By far the most beautiful building in Barcelona. Ever changing with its sliding panels... It's shimmers by the beach!
This has a great concept - I love the idea of a building that morphs with the use of its inhabitants. It's also fantastic that the underlying principle of the facade relates to the daily fluctuations of temperature weather and the movement of the sun. However, I just can't get past the fact that I think this particular execution of those ideas is just not aesthetically pleasing. Maybe it is more alive in person. Beautiful concept but a bit ugly.-Lucas Graywww.talkitect.com
