About Palau Sant Jordi:

Palau Sant Jordi was built for the 1992 Olympics and designed by architect Arata Isozaki. As an indoor arena with capacity for 16 thousand people it often hosts concerts. I have seen The Cure and Mark Knopfler live here.

Palau Sant Jordi is part of the Olympic park complex. Within the park is a 136 metre high Telefonica needle like communications tower.

A competition entry for Telefonica for an Olympic telecoms tower, it is sited immediately next to the Palau Sant Jordi Arena.

Leaning gently from a three-point foundation to coincide with the angle of the sun at solstice, the tower's feet rest on a brick drum (a requirement of the competition).

This base features an articulated door that opens like an eye to provide access to telecommunication equipment. The heel of the tower is supported on a circular shell of white concrete, clad in broken tiles (trencalos).

The tower structure repeats the fundamental geometry of the base to support a segment which houses the array of antennas.
