MADRID | Projects & Construction

Madrid is a city of 3.000.000 people and 5.700.000 in metro, capital of Spain, with a very strong economy in the last 15 years and now is living a real boom in new architecture and construction.

The projects include different aspects as remodelation of big boulevars (Paseo del Prado), the extention of four new big museums (Museo del Prado, Museo Thyssen, Museo Reina Sofía, Caixafórum), a very big ne park along the river Manzanares of 6 kilometers long, another two big parks, new tube lines (the net has reached 300 kms. and will reach soon 340), 4 skyscrapers of 250 meters high, a new terminal in the Barajas airport (1 km. long), 2 new theatres, 2 new arenas, several big company headquarters, a new City of Justice (the biggest of the world, they say) and private living buildings.

The architects are between the best of the world and Spain, including Foster, Pei and partners, Alvaro Siza, Toyo ito, Richard Rogers, Zaha Hadid, Jean Nouvel, Herzog and De Meuron.

Thanks to pedrillo, Tintoretto, Neuromarcer and sorry if i have taken somones´s pictures wthout telling their names, it has been done with no intention.

These are the four ne skyscrapers at the North of the city:














Torre Espacio is a project by Pei Cobb and Partners:










They will be finished in a few months.

This is the new terminal at the Barajas airport by Richard Rogers:











Reina Sofia Museum is a building by Jean Nouvel. It´s near Museo del Prado and it contains Picasso´s guernica and many Dalí´s famous pictures:












Caixafórum is a project by Herzog and De meuron. It´s a cultural center between the three most imortant art museums in madrid: Prado, thyssen and Reina Sofía. It reminds me of their building in London.







It will be finished soon:



















This is the extension of the Museo Thyssen, in front of the museo del Prado, by Boopba:








They organised realy good exhibitions for the lovers of art. the last one: the last picttures of Van Gogh painted just a few days before he commited suicide.



I´ll start showing the new Ciudad de la justicia (City of Justice) which has 18 buildings. Thanks to Pedrillo and Tintoretto for the pictures.

The place is located in the North East of madrid, very near the airport and the new Ciudad Deportiva del Real Madrid:











These two buildings are a project by Foster:



If you look well, you´ll see it will be built over a pool of water and will have small bridges to reach the entrance.







This building is a project of Rafael de la Hoz. This Spanish architect has disigned also the space where the buildings are.






Zaera:



Frenchilla y Peláez:



This is the headquarters of a company by rafael de la Hoz:





Another company:




This is the "magic Box" by Perrault. It´s a tennis arena and the ceiling can be opened.









Thanks to coyote for the last picture.

For the moment this is everything for today. I have left many more projects and buildings for the next days and weeks.

Ipioe, I didn´t know these projects abut I suspect that they are not too tall, since in the Spanish forums would have been very comented if so.

For the moment the tallest buidings in Madrid are the forur towers shown in the beginning.
