what an uplifting style. coming on this site is therapy for me given the state of the world, it transports me back to a more optimistic time (let's forget the Cuban missile crisis for a minute) which is definitely reflected in the designs.

I feel exactly the same, and I love it for the same reason. It's like one can see the hope in a bright future in many of those buildings.

Yes, progress was linear, then.

Once again a stunning and inspiring piece of architecture from Spain. These people are so good when it comes to perceiving aesthetics and design, one of my favorites in fact, they have beautiful historical architecture, but they certainly don't underestimate the power of modern architecture.
I love the yellow tiles and the stairs, I could not say sure if that's tiles, or mosaics used bellow the windows, but they look more like tiles and I love them, the rest of the square frames around them and around the entrance look very good too.

They add so much to the building's whole appearance, I like the pastel colors.

What do you think of this building?


2016-10-20_12-40-25
by Alexandru Mircea, on Flickr

It fascinates me how it brings together concrete, brick, steel and glass each with its own aesthetic(s). My take is that the middle part represents classic post-war architecture, while the sides (with glass & metal) represent the then new style that came to define the 80s (the building was opened in 1982). The former is quite excellent and timeless, while the latter has dated a lot (which I also think in general of this 80s style). Overall I still like it though.

I think it's aged pretty well. Pretty typical of late 70s early 80s style.
