Torre de Madrid was built in 1957.

By the way, nice work Pedrillo.

The new terminal is stunning, the rainbow colors seem to be a forced necessity.

Excellent thread, excellent Madrid

My most sincere congrats to Pedrillo for the great post. Hope more posts on Madrid and on great spanish projects become available on this website.

Madrid (and, in general, Spain) is currently living a very accelerated process of modernization. I've been living in Madrid for almost 6 years and the change of the city is everywhere. Just 10 years ago the metro (subway) network of the city was rather old and scarce, absolutely not comparable to any of the networks of big european capitals such as Paris, London or even Berlin. Now the situation is changing dramatically. The investment in the city is really powerful, and the population growth is amazing, with no comparison in any other European capital.

Madrid's metro area surpasses by large 6 million inhabitants. The area of influence has reached other historic capitals of Spain such as Toledo (the old capital of Spain), Guadalajara, Segovia and Ávila, some of which are distant more than 70 km away from Madrid. This makes Madrid Europe's third largest metro area, after London and Paris (with the permission of Moscow, which I consider "out" of Western Europe). Therefore, the diameter of Madrid's metro area is as wide as 130 km, although the highest population density is inside a circle of 30-40 km radius. As in other capitals, the uncountable population is huge. For example me, I live there but I'm not listed in Madrid's population. As me there are thousands and thousands of people. The immigration is also very important, and becoming larger. Nowadays, immigrant population (not spaniards) raises to nearly 1 million people, plus an indefinite number of people that are not listed.

Historically, Madrid has grown in a chaotic way. No urban plannings at all where used until the second half of 19th century (with the only exception of the illustrated king Charles the third's city expansion in 18th century). But undoubtly, the most important growth of the city is being right now. We can say that the model of city (although the city is hundrends and hundrends years old) is still under definition, or more correctly, under construction. The population nuclea sorrounding the city are somehow spread out and without continuity in some cases. Many of the urban plans that are right now being worked out solve that problem, and hence many of the suburban city areas are being integrated into an urban continuum. Examples of these are the big towns of the south, summing more than 1 million people (Leganés, Móstoles, Alcorcón, Getafe and Fuenlabrada) which are supposed to be integrated through the creation of a huge central park (an extension of the actual Polvoranca park), or the towns in the north which are being integrated with the northern part of the city: Sanchinarro and Las Tablas extension with Alcobendas and San Sebastián. Inside the city there are very important projects that are being carried out. In my opinion, the most important one, because it has a value of rejoining central parts of the city, is the conversion of the M-30 highway to an undergroud expressway. Of course, the Olympic projects are great (hopefully, Madrid will be chosen to host 2012 Olympic Games). Other examples apply, but in order to make the post shorter I will omit them.

I must say that although Madrid has an EXCELLENT rapid transport network (probably the best in the world, considering the size and population of the city), the pollution and the traffic jams are just helly. The ratio of cars per capita is reaching 1 (actually, Spain is the country of Europe with the largest number of new cars sold during the period of the last 3 years in absolute terms).

I wanted to attach a picture where you guys could see the extension of Madrid's metro area during the period 1990-2000. Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to attach images, I don't know why. The admin of this post, please help me.

MADRID, GOOD LUCK AT THE ELECTION FOR 2012 OLYMPICS.

Pedrillo, aplaudiría pero me quedaría corto. Un thread espectacular, a la altura de Madrid

¡Pedrillo excelente trabajo!
Pero echa toda la leña al fuego que quedan 35 horas y media para que se sepa quien será la ciudad escogida y que vean todos los foreros, en especial los británicos, de que pasta está hecha Madrid!
GO MADRID 2012!
