Barcelona, a photo a day

Toyo Ito did it

Out of Barcelona… We’re in L’ Hospitalet de Llobregat (aka the suburbs), home of one of the mega-shops of this Swedish packed furniture company whose name starts with an I. I was curtain shopping.
Anyway, got the curtains I wanted, and got a photo of the 2 Torres Porta Fira, by Japanese architect Toyo Ito. If you’ve ever landed in Barcelona airport, you’ve most probably seen these 2 red buildings. One is a hotel, the other an office building.
Photo taken with my very basic and quite bad HTC mobile phone.

  2. My experiences with “I” have not been good…and they've gotten a poor reputation here re treatment of employees and quality of stuff they sell.

    Interesting couple of buildings. The red one, I think, is slowly collapsing in on itself!

    Re your comment on The Villages: The Villages is just over 30 years old and this Disneyland for Adults tries to make everything look old!

  3. Oh my gosh I'd be terrified to go into this 'I' it's hard enough finding my way around our smaller one here in Perth 🙂 the food's not bad though and soooo reasonable.

  6. Le rouge est mis…

    Tu ne me feras pas croire que chez I tu n'as acheté QUE des rideaux. C'est pas possible ça. On ressort toujours avec des bougies chauffe-plat, un bougeoir et un coussin oh et puis des petits gâteaux, non ?
