The Colon Tower has become an architectural icon to Barcelona. The tower consists of a horizontal podium for parking, a 22 story office tower, and a trapezoidal crown.

The architects add that, "... play in axes, mass, and geometry mitigate concrete’s material severity. The tower’s interiors highlight austerity and perspectival play."
