Heron City Barcelona: Shades and Colors

Heron City Barcelona: Shades and Colors

This curious design caught my attention while visiting Heron City Barcelona, a modern complex combining shops, restaurants, movie theaters, and a tower hotel. Heron City Center is next to a brand new El Corte Inglés (major chain of stores in Spain), to Can Dragó municipal sports center and an old beautiful cemetery (yes, I know it is weird).

  1. This reminds me a little of the Calder mobile in the Washington, DC National Gallery of Art's East Building.

  3. Hello Carlos, how funny I designed this! Its true was alittle bit of a Calder influence. Will dig out the drawings if you are intetested. I never managed the build just did the drawings for Heron. Do you have any other photos? I also designed the wave on the glass, the flying people on stilts, neon on the mesh and urchins :) It was a long time ago 1999/2000 — here's my latest portfolio site if your interested www.lf.studio
