Torre Agbar was designed by the architect Jean Novel and his firm, together with Barcelona architects b720 Arquitectos. Although it might look like a skyscraper, Novel means that it is not a typical skyscraper such as the others around the world. What is most amazing with Torre Agbar is the nocturnal illumination which are displayed at night. It has over 40000 LED lights of different colors giving a beautiful appearce to the tower. At
New Years eve, the lights present a "dance" show where they simulate the 12 bells of the end of the year, this being a typical Spanish tradition.
