1999 Water: WET Architect: Pei Cobb Freed and Partners Photograph: Joan Mundo Located at the outer most point of the Moll de Barcelona, the World Trade Center links the city’s wharf with the Gothic quarter of Barcelona. The four part building complex surrounds the central patio where the water expression is located. The water elements and cruciform geometry used in the project are informed by the surrounding architecture while the water display is intended to be a vibrant expression of kinetics and animated pattern. There is no barrier between the water and its surrounding hardscape. Vertical water pulses emit from openings in the plaza surface.
