With a total area of 84,000 m2, it is considered one of the largest urban squares in the world.
The largest urban solar structure in Europe, a privileged space with views of the Fòrum Port and the bathing area, with an area of approximately 1,700 m², has become one of the icons of the city of Barcelona and a symbol of its commitment to the preservation of the environment.
A set of columns that support photovoltaic panels and occupy an area of more than 15,000 m² where different environments can be created for all kinds of events.
Three covered structures that make a shadow frame inside the Gran Esplanade and, with an area of 1,200 m², form an incomparable space for charming events.
Between the esplanade and the sea is the Parc dels Auditoris. It is a large space of more than 12,000 m2 in the open air subdivided into two auditoriums of different capacities and a promenade that connects them, in the open air and next to the sea.
It is the work of Alejandro Zaera, and the name comes from two outdoor auditorium stands designed for concerts and shows. The space between the two is made up of a series of dunes that combine the green spaces with crescent-shaped concrete tiles in pink tones.
These auditoriums were designed to be the setting for many of the shows at the Fòrum Barcelona 2004. If we access the park from Plaça del Fòrum, when we enter it we find a tier that climbs to the left along the slope. This is the 'Auditori Petit and just at the other end of the park there is an immense esplanade where a grandstand called the Auditori Gran also rises.
There are two large tents connected to each other in order to offer events in different formats, and which can be used jointly or individually and with a capacity for more than 600 people.
The large tent has an area of 614 m2 and the small tent is 249 m2. They have heating, air conditioning, toilets and five modules for different uses. Their versatility and originality make them the perfect places to hold banquets, private parties, small-format concerts and many other kinds of events.
The Fòrum’s bathing area was designed by architect Beth Galí, with a space where you can do the same activities as on the beach, such as sunbathing or swimming. It should be noted, however, that there is no sand and that the water is accessed directly from paved surfaces by steps.
It has an area for people with disabilities that offers the Al bany help service. This service is aimed at people with disabilities and reduced mobility and aims to make it easier for them to get in and out of the water so that they can enjoy time bathing using, if necessary, a hydraulic chair.
This is an open space next to the sea, with an area of 7.6 ha, with direct access to the side of the Ronda Litoral and connected internally with the Parc dels Auditoris. It can offer any kind of concert, show or event that gathers a large number of people and is an ideal place for holding large outdoor events that gather a large audience.
Dimensions of the Plaça dels Afusellats: 7,000m².
Located between the playground and the Terraza Bus.
A new Memorial Space has been inaugurated in the Camp de la Bota in memory and homage to all the people executed by the Franco regime
The Parapet of the Executed 1939-1952 is the work of the artist Francesc Abad and it evokes the wall of executions that was submerged with the works of the Fòrum.
The Mayor of Barcelona, Ada Colau, inaugurated the new Memorial Space, the Parapet of the executed 1939-1952 on 24/02/2019 in the Camp de la Bota to remember and pay tribute to the 1,706 people who were executed in Barcelona, the most in this area of Barcelona’s coastline.
This gives access to the Fòrum Park, between two of the most emblematic buildings in the city, the Fòrum Building (Museum of Natural Sciences) and the CCIB, and culminates with the Plaça dels Afusellats, which is approximately 9,000 m2.
This also offers direct access to the esplanade, between the Fòrum Building and the new Telefónica building. These two avenues are more than 200 metres long by 50 metres wide, making them the best choice for trade fairs, exhibitions and many other types of events.
