Design of the Torre de Collserola, Barcelona

In February 1988 the City of Barcelona held an invited competition for the design of a new telecommunications tower. They asked for the tower to be a ‘monumental technological element.. . to enhance the image of Barcelona in the context of the 1992 Olympics’. The magnificent site overlooks the city from a height of 440 m above sea level. The new tower is called the Torre de Collserola, after the mountain on which it stands. C.M. Wise
