Opened 15 years ago, Glòries is a popular shopping mall, located in a new and vibrant high-tech neighborhood known as “22@”. It has been completely refurbished and transformed under the direction of L35 Architects. The two water features are located in the Plaza de la moda.
Drops create several focal points that combine water and virtual ripples of light. The water is texturized and the surface gets a plastic and varying shape.The illumination reinforces visually the texture that water acquires. The duality between reality and the virtual is emphasized by the reflection generated by the mirror located on top of the water.
