By Toyo Ito
The building is the work of the architect Toyo Ito, noted for his signature work on the undulating steel façade, an allegorical reinterpretation of La Pedrera which stands opposite and whose architect, Antoni Gaudí, is one of Toyo Ito's sources of inspiration. The curved lines are inspired by the shapes of nature and capture different hues and tones of the light, changing colour according to the time of day.
Guests at the Suites Avenue Luxe will be able to visit the Museum Room in the building, an exclusive space exhibiting part of the Clos Archaeological Collection, with unique works of Hindu and Buddhist art, including pieces and carvings from the 16th to the 19th centuries.
