Typical Richard Meier building with rectilinear elements expressed in his trademark white metal panels and key elements expressed in white render as organic forms in plan. Meier has created lyrical forms here and the building appears successful when view from many angles.
It could be argued that Richard Meier should have engaged more with the context of Barcelona architecture as the building appears on every level to be similar to ones he´s designed for other cities. However the pure whiteness is a joy to behold in the scruffy backlands off La Rambla and the importance of the building suggests breaking the texture of Barcelona is appropriate.
