Lookout point at Parc del Fòrum | Elías Torres & José Antonio Martínez Lapeña | 2004 | Barcelona
.
Parc del Fòrum is a large site open to the sea and a reminder of the Universal Forum of Cultures held in Barcelona in 2004.
The industrial-looking park is actually not a bad place to relax, and the architecture is stunning, if at times brutal. What do you think?

Südpark building | Herzog & de Meuron | 2010-13 | Basel
“The façade of the Südpark seeks to render the historical character of the differently shaped windows in the Gundeldinger Quarter in a contemporary architectural idiom. The intention is not only to make a pleasing visual impression from outside but also to ensure ample daylight inside as well as offering unexpected, fortuitous views and niches for storage. The mat, silvery appearance of the façade is generated by a commercially available synthetic stucco. The seemingly random arrangement of the unevenly sized windows is actually the result of parametric programming. The façade consists of 12 freely combined window shapes, which fuse into meandering, right-angled windows designed to match the scale and daily activities of human life. At selected places in the building, the façade is extruded inwards, creating sills that can be used, for instance as seating. Casing runs all around the windows on the outside. The almost entirely glazed façade around the inner courtyard with its restful horizontal subdivision stands in contrast to the stucco façade.”

El Pont del Bisbe (Bishop’s Bridge) | Joan Rubió i Bellver | 1928 | Barcelona

One of the most photographed sights in Barcelona’s Gothic Quarter, El Pont del Bisbe (Bishop’s Bridge) was built for the Barcelona International Exposition which took place in 1929.
The bridge was designed by architect Joan Rubió i Bellver who suggested that all non-Gothic buildings in the immediate vicinity of Barcelona Cathedral should be demolished and replaced by new Gothic style buildings.
Fortunately, Rubió’s plan to beautify the Gothic Quarter was rejected and only the bridge, which links the Palau de la Generalitat to La Casa dels Canonges, was built.
there are a lot of legends and superstitions surrounding the Pont del Bisbe
Despite the fact that it is one of the newest buildings in the area, the neo-Gothic bridge is associated with several local legends and superstitions.
Hardly surprisingly, all of the legends relate to the gruesome skull and dagger motif which decorates the underside of the bridge.
Some say that the skull was the architect’s way of expressing his displeasure after his original plan was turned down. Others have even suggested that, rather than being a stone carving, it is in fact a real human skull!
Another legend says that if the dagger which traverses the skull is ever removed then the city of Barcelona will be destroyed.
On a more positive note. Another legend states that if you make a wish while walking backwards under the bridge and looking directly at the skull then that wish will come true.
