One of my favourite cities, vibrant and full of creativity, this is Barcelona. This week The Hunter will be looking for inspiration and ideas around the city.

After a short break in NY, Hunt for Design is back. This time I wanted to share with you this fabulous hotel that has changed and enhanced the skyline of Barcelona. Very controversial at first, there was a considerable amount of people against it. For a start is too close to the sea under Spanish…
