Torres de Hercules par Rafael De La Hoz

In Andalusia, in the Bay of Algeciras, stands this double tower built by the Madrid architect Rafael De La Hoz. Its astonishing facade consists of a concrete frame interlaced thick and stylized letters.

Scrambled at the structure, these letters in bold type represent the text of a local legend: "No More Ultra". Linked by a glass walkway, the 2 20 tower floors accommodate 19 000 m² offices, bank branches, travel agents and a restaurant on the top floor, offering a panoramic view of the Strait of Gibraltar.
