MACBA I

C/Elizabets, seen from the MACBA, Barcelona

The first of a set of semi-abstract images of the Museu d’ Art Contemporani de Barcelona (MACBA).

The museum opened in 1995 and exhibits a wide range of modern artworks. The MACBA is also infamous for being rather more successful as a skateboarding destination – something which sits awkwardly with local residents and is somewhat at odds with the serene modernist architecture originally envisaged by the architect and which invites comparison with the Getty Centre in Los Angeles. But perhaps the architectural connection connection with skateboarding was there from the beginning…
