Entertainment and Retail Center at Diagonal Mar
Diagonal Mar Retail and Entertainment Center is part of a much larger urban project that also includes medium-rise and high-rise residential, hotel, and office development and a 34-acre public park. The center seeks to adapt the typology of the typical American mall, which is suburban and introspective, to a fringe location that aspires to the urbanity of a city center. Shops open both inward to three-storey-high skylit galleries and outward to the street. At the top level, restaurants spill out onto an outdoor plaza with views to the adjacent park and the sea beyond.
