From the architect. The 22@ is an experimental district in Barcelona, Spain, with a mayor energetic load (District Climate), where the new values of the companies are intangible: they are not based in having natural resources of water, soil, gas, they don’t have real-estate values, retransmission rights (media Pro), they have patents (Indra), they have intelligence, programming and interaction (like the Reactable of Sergi Jorda from the Pompeu), a district, the way Artur Serra from I2CAT and the people form the 22@ say, an urban Lab.

Is here where Spanish architect Enric Ruiz Geli designed this innovative building with a net-like steel structure, avoiding pillars on the ground floor, introducing the public spaces to the building.

so hideous that facade. i would be fine with someone copying t the pompidou center, but this doesn't even achieve the flawless free plan of the Pompidou. I do like those columns though expressing the pin connection. Nice spaces too. no law against ugly

Ingo Ratsdorf · February 10, 2010

I think in terms of design it is quite admirable. But in terms of a building which main purpose is to be a working/living place for people, I believe it is far too cold, has no scale and proportion that relates back to humans. It's appearance is sterile like a lab or hospital. An atrium for some natural light would be great - some connections to the exterior for the poor people in the centre of the floor.
It is merely another tribute to high tech a la Centre Pompidou, although not quite getting there.
Furthermore, the design has not much to do with the original competition model apart from the cubic form.

It's great to see that the 'high tech' movement is still alive!

Awesome building.
