Barcelona, a photo a day

Barcelona ROCKs!


This is the MACBA, the Barcelona Museum of contemporary art, yesterday evening. In front of it is a big square, very popular with skaters. And next to it, says the Norwegian Dagbladet, they want to build the Rock!

This would be (yes, would, as I have some doubts about its feasibility) a hostel, complete with bar, fitness center, spa, swimming pool, cinema, and some … climbing facilities. If your Norwegian is not too bad, read more about it here. It is an idea of the Polish architectural company Ugo, for the Barcelona 2011 Bohemian Hostel for Backpackers International Competition

Sounds a bit like a joke to me, but hey, this being Barcelona, everything is possible!!!

And big TAK to our friend Gunn in Stavanger for letting us know. Feel free to visit her blog, Stavanger Daily Photo.

  2. The reflected colours look like a huge artwork – not sure the building would be as stunning without them. And that 'rock'? Well…..

  3. A very impressive building and, as the name says, it´s really contemporary.

  4. The reflections in the glass of the Museum are fantastic, great spot for skaters out front..the Rock is certainly unique, but also very bizarre, wouldn't it stick out like a sore thumb!!

  7. I love this building, the outside is not so great, inside it´s more beautiful, the lines are very clear. Unfortunately, when I was there two years ago, the exhibition was a little disappointing.
