Olé! Spanish bullring gets RRP makeover

  • Comment

Spanish developer Sacresa has chosen the Richard Rogers Partnership to transform Barcelona's second most important bullring into a e100,000m mixed-use leisure and entertainment complex. The £63 million design - which will restore the existing Arabic facade - will cover the inside of the Las Arenas ring with a partially transparent roof and feature a series of new piazzas within the enclosed ground level. There will also be an additional 'piazza in the sky' that will house a garden with views over the city.Barcelona's mayor, Joan Clos, described the project as 'an unrepeatable use of new technologies combined with the conservation of the facade'.
