The plaza in front of the towers with the huge fountain by Vicente Rojo

 
"The design of the fountain consists of a water mirror of 114 x 98 feet with more than one thousand red concrete pyramids that in addition to the movement of water generated by a series of air injectors between each pyramid turns into a great fountain full of movement" (website by Legorreta + Legorreta Architects).
