Photographer's Note

The "Mare Nostrum" Tower is a ensemble of buildings, linked between them, and is an authentic challenge for the photographers, because we can find a great variety of architectural shapes, depending on the visual angle that we use, only it is necessary to surround the tower and always we will find a different sight. In this capture I tried to catch one of its spectacular ledges, and the magnificent reflections that offers us its covering of glass and the prismatic shapes of its low part.

In WORKSHOP, another capture in low-angle shot for to catch these fantastic reflections.

Information: The "Mare Nostrum" Tower was the posthumous work of the brilliant Catalan architect Enric Miralles, designed together with her wif Benedetta Tagliablue. Its construction finished in 2006, soon after his death. Nowadays it is the headquarters of Natural Gas / Union Fenosa. It measures 88 meters of height and stands out because of its spectacular ledge that is supported on the emptiness and because its particular volumetry: according to the angle from where one looks, it looks like a building completely differently. It's organized in three buildings of glass assembled between them. Its main characteristic is the coating glass, made specifically for to gives a millimetric and reflecting deformation, which creates a few changeable images "which swing as if they were a gas flame", as comments Benedetta Tagliablue, co-author of the project.

La Torre Mare Nostrum es un conjunto de edificios unidos entre s, y es un autntico desafo para los fotgrafos, porque podemos encontrar una gran variedad de formas arquitectnicas dependiendo del ngulo visual que utilicemos, solamente hay que rodear la torre y siempre encontraremos una vista diferente.

En esta toma intent captar uno de sus espectaculares voladizos, y los magnficos reflejos que nos ofrece su recubrimiento de vidrio y las formas prismticas de su parte inferior.

En WORKSHOP, otra toma en contrapicado para captar esos fantsticos reflejos.

Informacin: La Torre Mare Nostrum fue la obra pstuma del genial arquitecto cataln Enric Miralles, diseada conjuntamente con Benedetta Tagliablue. Su construccin se termin en 2006, poco despus de su muerte. Actualmente es la sede de Gas Natural / Unin Fenosa.
Mide 88 metros de altura y destaca por su espectacular voladizo que se sostiene sobre el vaco y por su volumetra particular: segn el ngulo desde donde se mire parece un edificio por completo distinto. Se organiza en tres edificios de cristal ensamblados entre s. Su caracterstica principal es el revestimiento de cristal, fabricado especficamente para darle una deformacin milimtrica reflectante que crea imgenes cambiantes que oscilan como si fueran una llama de gas, segn comenta Benedetta Tagliablue, coautora del proyecto.
