Fundaci贸 Joan Mir贸 | Josep Llu铆s Sert | 1972-75 | Barcelona

The architect Josep Llu铆s Sert designed the Foundation's building with clean, airy white shapes of curves and corners and multiple skylights, creating a decidedly Mediterranean-flavored complex arranged around a central patio, with expansive roof terraces above. Two subsequent expansions to the building (1988 and 2000) were designed by Jaume Freixa.

Walden-7 | Ricardo Bofill 'Taller d'Arquitectura' | 1973-75 | Sant Just Desvern

The name of the building is inspired by B. F. Skinner's science-fiction novel, Walden Two, which depicts a utopian community and itself is a reference to Henry David Thoreau's novel Walden. It is noted for its use of modules to create apartments and many public community spaces. Individual freedoms and the different possible forms of coexistence between people inspired the architectural thought behind the project of Walden 7.

Lookout point at Parc del F貌rum | El铆as Torres & Jos茅 Antonio Mart铆nez Lape帽a | 2004 | Barcelona
.
Parc del F貌rum is a large site open to the sea and a reminder of the Universal Forum of Cultures held in Barcelona in 2004.
The industrial-looking park is actually not a bad place to relax, and the architecture is stunning, if at times brutal. What do you think?

S眉dpark building | Herzog & de Meuron | 2010-13 | Basel
鈥淭he fa莽ade of the S眉dpark seeks to render the historical character of the differently shaped windows in the Gundeldinger Quarter in a contemporary architectural idiom. The intention is not only to make a pleasing visual impression from outside but also to ensure ample daylight inside as well as offering unexpected, fortuitous views and niches for storage. The mat, silvery appearance of the fa莽ade is generated by a commercially available synthetic stucco. The seemingly random arrangement of the unevenly sized windows is actually the result of parametric programming. The fa莽ade consists of 12 freely combined window shapes, which fuse into meandering, right-angled windows designed to match the scale and daily activities of human life. At selected places in the building, the fa莽ade is extruded inwards, creating sills that can be used, for instance as seating. Casing runs all around the windows on the outside. The almost entirely glazed fa莽ade around the inner courtyard with its restful horizontal subdivision stands in contrast to the stucco fa莽ade.鈥
