Abstract

The Hispano Olivetti headquarters in Barcelona by the BBPR Group can be considered as an exemplary work in the process of the construction of an aesthetic expression in architecture. A skillful and complex creation, which reveals the difficulties in achieving harmony in an architectural work, in a precarious balance between respect for the culture of places, the formal tradition of the context, and invention in the wake of modern experimentation.
