The Media-TIC building is the nucleus of union between the space of the Media and ICT clusters of 22 @ Barcelona, a meeting point for companies and professionals of 14,000 square meters in spaces. The Media-TIC building, promoted by the Consorci de la Zona Franca de Barcelona and the 22 @ Barcelona society, is located in the 22 @ Barcelona district, at the junction of the streets of Roc Boronat and Sancho de Ávila.
This is a design created from the Cloud-9 architecture office, led by Enric Ruiz-Geli, built between 2007 and 2009, and opened in 2010. The building has a cubic shape and is formed by Large iron master beams covered by an inflatable bubble plastic lining that reveals the fluorescence structure of the building. The attractive coating also has a functional utility as an instrument to regulate light and the temperature that avoids, mainly, the effluent to the atmosphere of 114 tons of CO2 per year and 20% savings in air conditioning . The coating, translucent and innovative, the ETFE (Ethilene Tetrafluor Ethilene) acts as an external cover and a mobile solar screen that facilitates penetration of light and thermal savings. The ETFE skin is activated with pneumatic mechanisms thanks to "luxometers" sensors, which, depending on the existing solar energy, automatically activate and self-inflame devices for inflating and deflating the cameras. These luxometers are energetically autonomous. Within the sustainable design mechanisms, a few are described in this text, which we can also emphasize is the green cover that covers the roof of the building.
