Photographer's Note

The parc central del Poble Noue is a surreal and innovative urban jungle project designed by the French architect Jean Nouvel, author of the Agbar Tower, in the district of Sant Marti.

The new green space, bounded by Avenida Diagonal and the streets of Bac de Roda and Marroc, intends to be a single reference in Barcelona through an exuberance and ornamental plant that breaks with the controversial model of the tough places.

One the most characteristic elements is the wall coated bougainvilleas and ivy surrounding its 55 hectares. This gives a clear idea of how the garden integrates several streets, old industrial buildings and a reformed kaliferije pneumatic selective waste.

The wall has several entries - the main access includes an artistic wrought-iron gate - and voids in the form of window, all of Gaudinian evocation.

All info on internet.

Detail of chairs designed by Jean Nouvel. I believe these chairs are called 'riddle'.
