Barcelona’s cucumber-shaped tower, Jean Nouvel’s luminous Torre Glòries (formerly Torre Agbar) is among the most daring additions to the skyline since the first towers of La Sagrada Família went up. Completed in 2005, the 38-storey structure shimmers at night in shades of midnight blue and lipstick red. The interior is home to offices and is closed to the public.
