Well, treating architecture as a kind of art has a very long tradition in Europe. Every piece of art has its author and his name should be known.

This is the new ranking of the tallest buildings in Western Europe, including the buildings under construction. Note the importance of the 4 Madrid towers in the top ten. Exists rumours about the height of Torre Repsol will be increased to 270 meters, in that case, this will be the tallest of the European Union in 2007.

Great pictures and projects going on in Madrid. I didnt have much an idea of what Madrid looked like before. So thanks for the pics. It definitely looks like a city worth visiting.

That's pretty cool.I think no matter how historical a city is.It should always have some impressive skyscrapers.And it seem that these projects are going to put Madrid in the limelight.Bravo.I hope this great city gets the recognition it deserves.
I think that many people are aware that Madrid is the nightlife capital of the world.And it is also home to the greatest football club on the planet.
Hopefully it will get alot more recognition in many other areas.Such as the fact that it is one of the museum capitals of Europe.And a great cultural center as well.
