This week the hoardings surrounding the new “Disseny Hub Barcelona” came down. The “Disseny Hub” (or Design Hub in English) is billed as combination of museum, centre and laboratory. I’m not exactly sure what that means but the new building is certainly impressive. Situated next to the Agbar Tower in the 22@ district of Barcelona it reminds me of a Transformer’s head ! I must say that I was sceptical when construction started but the end result is an impressive combination of radical modern design combined with an excellent use of water and open spaces. Although the hoardings have now come down the building isn’t finished yet. I for one am looking forward to the chance to see what it’s all about when it opens later this year.
