Torre Glòries, formerly Torre Agbar (an acronym for Aguas de Barcelona), is a skyscraper in Barcelona located at the confluence of Avenida Diagonal and Calle Badajoz, next to Plaza de las Glorias, and which marks the entrance door to the district technological centre of Barcelona known as 22 @ District. The tower was designed by the architect Jean Nouvel. As explained by Nouvel himself, on the one hand, he was inspired by the work of the Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí taking as a reference the bell towers of the Sagrada Familia and in turn based on the idea of ​​the Hotel Attraction, a supposed project carried out by the Reusense master in 1908 for hoteliers in New York that was redesigned in 1956 by his disciple Joan Matamala and that in 1978 was included in Rem Koolhaas' book "Delirious New York", a reference for many architects. Furthermore, as a tribute to the Sagrada Familia, the north-facing part of the tower was designed with the intention of obtaining an optimal panoramic view of the temple. In turn, Nouvel was inspired by the characteristic pinnacles of the Montserrat mountain, which is of great significance to Catalonia. Nouvel explained that the Agbar Tower was fleeing the prevailing conception in North America of what a skyscraper with parallelepiped shapes should be. The intention of the architect was to make it emerge from the ground in a special way so, being a tower initially dedicated to the headquarters of a water-related services company, it relied on the metaphor of a geyser emerging from the deep sea. One of the most characteristic elements of the building is its night lighting. The tower has more than 4,500 LED devices, which can be operated independently and enable the generation of light images on the entire façade. The temperature inside the building is regulated by a VRV system that organizes each floor of the building into 27 different zones and that acts intelligently in each one of them, optimizing the amount of energy used, so that, for example, it does not provide heat to offices that are unoccupied or areas intended for storage.
