Poster Diagonal Mar Park

The Diagonal Mar Park, designed by Benedetta Tagliabue and Enric Miralles extends over fourteen hectares near the sea. To overcome urban obstacles, Park plot divided, for example, by a street. To maintain the unity of the Park, a large metal tubes, serving at the same time like lighting supports, “sewn” Park, appearing and disappearing at various points. And our poster shows a dreamlike image of these tubes.

The Park, in 372 Llull street, clearly inspired in the Sea and opened in September 2002, reserve other surprises to enjoy, as Lake or the dunes that prevent that the sand and salt transported by wind damage vegetation.

The Trade buildings constitute a classic of contemporary Barcelona architecture and maintain its modernity. A group formed by four towers, three of them interconnected, designed by the architects José Antonio Coderch and Manuel Valls and built between 1966 and 1969 in the Avinguda Diagonal, a walkway of the avant-garde architecture.

A stunning glass curtain wall plays with light, natural and artificial, and shapes rounded with a garden area of internal movement created a particular space, and at the same time, open while, giving a rationalist coherence to the whole

Poster Cloister of Sant Pau del Camp

The monastery of Sant Pau del Camp is one of the best preserved Romanesque monuments of the city of Barcelona. And the cloister which illustrates our poster is part of the ensemble of the monastery.

This cloister is singular, its polilobated arches are unique in Europe and its general appearance, but its construction is from the 12th century and later to the Church, shows clear Muslim influences.

Arches, three to five lobes, are decorated with vegetal and geometric friezes, and rest on columns double, separated.

The capitals come from two chronological moments: transition to the the Romanesque and clearly Romanesque, with fantastic beasts and zoomorphic representations among plant motifs. We found Adam and Eve with the serpent, struggles of warriors and other representations.
