Madrid various: cultural center, theatre, museum, offices, etc

My intention with this thread is to make know some projects now being made in Madrid that are not as important as the four towers or the airport but that together are helping to modernize a lot the city. Madrid is living suddenly an explosion of modern arquitecture that is reflected in very different buildings: from public houses to new offices, from museums to hotels, from sports centers to theatres. They are being constructed in all parts of the city. Everywhere there is a new ambient.

I start with a cultural center by Herzog and De Meuron being made in Paseo del Prado, just in front of the museum.This is near Reina Sofía by Jean Nouvel and Thyssen by Spanish arquitects BOPBAA.

The highest part of the building is taking shape and colour:

This building will be "floating" when it´s finished. For the moment we can see the lowest part of it like this:

This building is an old electric substation. The arquitects wanted to keep the industrial flavour. It used to give light to the South part of old Madrid, including areas like Paseo del Prado and where the important museums are. Now there will be exhibitions there widening the cultural offer of Madrid.
