The Torre Agbar in Barcelona was completed in July of 2005, and has quickly become a distinguishable figure of the Barcelona skyline. Its unconventional shape and design only serve to enhance its appeal. The Torre Agbar is made up of two non-concentric oval cylinders, and has a dome of steel and glass at the top. This structure lacks internal columns, as the Torre Agbar's services and emergency stairwells find their home in its concrete center.
The building itself is a sight to behold from discount hotels near the Torre Agbar in Barcelona, because of its dual exteriors. The first layer of its exterior is comprised of polished aluminium, which shows itself in shades of blues, greys, and greens. The second layer causes the building to sparkle like a star. This layer is made up of 59,619 separate sheets of pristine glass. The Torre Agbar in Barcelona has a charm is only heightened as night falls. There are 4,500 blue, yellow, red, and pink lights that further enhance the exterior of the building.
