Today a group of MAA students visited iGuzzini España Headquarters in Barcelona, by Josep Miàs – MiAS ARCHITECTS. The offices of the Italian lightening company are located in a spherical glass structure, wrapped in a special fabric solar protector and hanged from a complex central pillar, whereas the showroom and storage area is contained in a lower concrete base. In night-time the sphere turns on in an exciting light show. The multi-awarded building (Architizer A+ Awards – Winner 2013 //  WAF World Architecture Awards – Shortlisted 2012// Building of the year Archdaily – Winner 2011) has been completed in 2011. The visit has been conducted by Silvia Brandi, project leader of this building in MiAS Architects and part of the IAAC Faculty. MAA visiting iGuzzini Building
