GRAN VIA ACOUSTIC PANELS
PHOTOS MAPS STREET VIEW

Benedetta Tagliabue has managed the successful Barcelona firm of Miralles Tagliabue EMBT since Enric Miralles’ death in 2000. Many modern designs in the city carry his or their joint signature. The acoustic panels along the Gran Via, one of Barcelona’s major arteries, were completed posthumously in 2007. The shape of the panels reflects the sound downward to the expressway below, and the material in their core absorbs part of the noise to create a quieter environment for residents.
