Recognisable for the bright red colour used on its top floors, a new skyscraper has appeared on the Barcelona skyline. A design by Odile Decq.

French architect Odile Decq has designed her first skyscraper. The Antares tower in Barcelona, which has 30 floors above ground, is a converted commercial building that was built at the start of Avinguda Diagonal, next to Enric Massip-Bosch’s Telefónica Diagonal ZeroZero Tower, but abandoned after the financial crisis of 2008.

The bright red colour used on the upper balconies makes the tower a distinctive feature of the city’s ever-changing skyline.

It’s one of my favourite colours. It represents passion. It’s life. I wanted the red on the top of the building to be like a flag signalling its presence and its identity.
