The city of Barcelona has been known since the early twentieth century as the home of Art Nouveau. Now it has also become a center for contemporary international architecture. This follow-up to In Detail: Barcelona Art Nouveau looks at the most notable buildings of the last 10 years, with detailed photographic reports on Josep Llu's Mateo's Barcelona Convention Center, Richard Meier's Museum of Contemporary Art, Carles Ferrater's Botanical Gardens and Institute, Rafael Moneo's Barcelona Auditorium concert hall, Herzog & de Meuron's Forum Building, Josep Llinas's block of buildings in the Fort Pienc neighborhood, EMBT's Santa Caterina Market, Clotet & Paricio's Forum-area retirement home and Jean Nouvel's Agbar Tower. The complexity of this new generation of structures, and the variety of local and international talent on view, are auspicious signs for the Barcelona of the twenty-first century.
