Operación Chamartín (next to CTBA) will be a big skyscrapers area with 15-20 tall towers, some tallers than CTBA, and the amazing CICCM (125m) will be near CTBA too.
There are at least 4 +100m towers in the area under construction or approved but not near CTBA.

I don´t know if there is a thread for this obelisk, but as they´re near the four towers I´ll show these pictures here. The author is Calatrava and it moves. These days they´re testing the movement and next December it´ll be inaugurated by the Spanish king.

They were made by Jorge and Aalto.


[QUOTE=jorge;326341]Veo que hoy nos hemos acercado unos cuantos (gracias aalto ¡¡) a ver si estaba funcionando y efectivamente estaba funcionando. A mí personalmente me ha encantado. Los videos no le hacen justicia, supongo porque son de cámara compacta, y la luz de hoy era un poco mala. Pero en directo es muy bonito. No se mueve como si estuviera empastillado, pero tampoco tan lento como para no notar el efecto.

Gracias torres por el video.. eso si que es un video como dios manda, y donde se ve muy bien como se mueve.
Y una foto de Aalto.

En otra ciudad se convertiría en un icono mítico, en Madrid... ya sabemos, la criticarán por uno u otro motivo. Aún así, creo que a la mayoría le va a gustar mucho.

Y ya que muchos teníamos dudas sobre la velocidad del movimiento, me ha parecido perfecta. Va rapidito.

Pictures don't make it any justice, is a moving mechanical obelisc. Here is a nice video of it while in the testing stages. If anyone notice the chicago spire had one of these in its renders.

I do agree the location is not the best it takes some away from the kio towers in my opinion. Still i think is cool.

I believe it looks great at night but during the day it looks bland and ugly without the effects of the lights.

Wow yeah it's amazing when moving! On pictures it's a bit ugly, but when you see the video of it moving, it looks like some organic creature.
