Photographer's Note

Esta foto está tomada en la entrada del Hotel Arts, en el vestíbulo que comunica con la entrada al Gran Casino de Barcelona, y nos muestra el conjunto de este jardín con unos surtidores por los que cae el agua creando unas bonitas cortinas líquidas.
El Hotel Arts es un edificio emblemático de Barcelona (España). Fue construido entre 1991 y 1992 a la entrada del puerto olímpico que se construyó en Barcelona con motivo de los Juegos Olímpicos de 1992. Preside dicha zona junto con la vecina Torre Mapfre, que tiene una altura similar. Consta de 43 plantas y tiene 154 metros de altura.
Es una torre de vidrio de colores verdes y grises, rodeada de una estructura de hierro de color blanco, que fue diseñada por el arquitecto Bruce Graham y es sede de un lujoso hotel de cinco estrellas que abrió sus puertas en 1994. Situado entre ambas torres y la playa se encuentra un gran pez metálico dorado, obra de Frank Gehry, otro de los elementos emblemáticos del entorno del edificio.
Próximamente pondré más fotos de esta zona y de este pez.

This photo is taken in the entrance of the Arts Hotel, in the lobby that communicates with the entrance to the Great Casino of Barcelona, and it shows the set to us of this garden with jets by which the water falls creating pretty liquid curtains.
The Arts Hotel is an emblematic building of Barcelona (Spain). It was constructed between 1991 and 1992 to the entrance of the Olympic port that was constructed in Barcelona in the occasion of the Olympic Games of 1992. The neighboring Mapfre Tower presides over this zone along with, that it has a similar height. It consists of 43 plants and it has 154 meters of height.
It is a glass tower of green and gray colors, surrounded by a structure of iron of white color, that it was designed by the architect Bruce Graham and is host of a luxurious hotel of five stars that opened its doors in 1994. Located between both towers and the beach is a great golden metallic fish, work of Frank Gehry, another one of the emblematic elements of the surroundings of the building.
Next I will put more photos of this zone and this fish.
