Designed as the platform for Forum de Les Cultures 2004, the beautiful buildings and leisure areas of Parc del Forum now host business conventions and cultural events on its 167,000 square meters paved with colored asphalt.
Foreign Office Architects (FOA) designed the seaside park, which whips concrete
and trees up from the land like icing. One of the main attractions of the city, the park’s ultra-modern main building, Edifici Forum, was designed by Jaques Herzog and Pierre de Meuron, and its bathing area provides its visitors with a modern setting to enjoy Barcelona’s Mediterranean beach. Parc Del Forum also contains a beautiful music auditorium and a solar photovoltaic panel installation, which helps protect the environment.
The Forum Esplanade, clad in solar panels, reveals its complex geometry situated between the seafront, the Ronda Litoral and the purification factory folding in at its edges.
