The Torre Glories, or Torre Agbar, has towered tall over Barcelona since 2005. This oval structure stands 144 metres tall, thanks to French architect Jean Novel, who was influenced by the natural beauty of Montserrat and the architectural curves of Gaudi. It was originally home to the water company Grup Agbar, and its shape and design has also been likened to a water geyser, with Nouvel himself saying “this tower is a fluid mass that bursts through the ground like a geyser under permanent, calculated pressure”. Others have detected more phallic influences.
Impressive in daylight, it is yet more striking at night when the multi-coloured windows flaunt their hues without shame. However, the building is not practical for those inside, with far too many windows that require cleaning, plus the dirty panes are too small to provide decent views and they either let in no light or far too much light!
And now a chance to tower tall with Gene Pitney:
Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.
OK, I know i overshot the limit. I managed a couple of sixes and then i succumbed do verbosity and even some music. So I’m chilled about a bit or rule breaking – the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.
