A hint of pickled vegetable

Torre Agbar, Barcelona, June 2019

The Torre Agbar, or Torre Glories, always reminds me of London’s Gherkin from the distance. Its design is said to have been inspired by a water geyser and mountains, not vegetables. It has, of course, acquired a few nicknames, all more phallic than pickled.
