Next stop: Drassanes Metro, BCN

Oh Barcelona, why do you torture me so! Drassanes is a metro station in Barcelona’s Ciutat Vella district at the old docks of Port Vell. The original station was built in 1968. Architect duo ON-A Architectura,  Eduardo Gutiérrez Munné and Jordi Fernández Río, covered the surfaces of the old station with new, flashier ones, giving the station a complete facelift. Lightweight, white glass-enforced concrete covers the vertical surfaces and a resin component helps make the white floors vibration-proof.
