UPF. Biblioteca de les Aigues by Lluís Clotet Ballús

Barcelona / Spain / 1999

Under the direction of the architect Lluís Clotet Ballús, the 
old  building  Diposit de les Aigues, built in 1874, was reconstructed and 
became the university library Biblioteca  General de la Universidad. The structural 
design of the original structure  was done by a young student architect, Antoni Gaudi.

In 2009, the renovation project was awarded the Decade Award, 
which the Oscar Tusquet Foundation awards the best architectural
 work,  realized in Barcelona, after 10 years of execution.
