A few days ago, I went to Barcelona hoping to photograph the Agbar Tower at night, when a beautiful light show takes place on the building. Because I arrived early and had enough time to explore the surroundings, I discovered the new design museum (“Museu del Disseny” in Catalan) and decided to take a few photos before it was too dark.
The museum was inaugurated on the first day of January. It holds a collection of 70,000 pieces that were previously housed in museums devoted to different aspects of design: textiles and fashion, graphics, ceramics, and decorative arts.
Cantilevering, walls of floor-to-ceiling glass, and transparent-sided escalators dominate the building, which was designed by a local firm of architects.
In this image, you can see the Agbar Tower in the background. It was not yet illuminated for the light show, but it’s a great companion for the new museum.
