The facade looks great though.
This project got it's final approval last month, is next to the 4 towers and the cheese. Do not worry they know what they are doing. We just have to be patient, Spain is not China. Here are a couple of pictures from project in the Shanghai expo.

This looks like a stereo speaker or a travel luggage than a cheese. The design is a a little too restrained. Not quite a fan of it.

Don´t worry for beautiful skyline of Madrid.In some years there´ll be more skyscrapers, some of 300 meters, if you dont like this four with the round building.

It´s true. Barcelona doesn´t act like this, it´s more like Lille because it doesn´t have any building of 250 meters. They have similar policy in that sense both cities.It´s nothing wrong, it´s simply more classical and traditional than Madrid, dear friend.

I like it quite a bit, it will be the only convention center with height in Europe with views of the city with 12m tall ceilings. The facade is part of the structure so there is no columns close to the windows. It is a little wide but convention centers need that square footage, the solution into making it round makes is looks less massive than a square wall type of building. Remember, is just a render for now and i have ate my own words before judging a building before its completion.

This is behind the towers so it doesn't ruin anything, if not it only compliments because the four towers are very close in height and this will bring some balance. Also from the best skyline view of Madrid this building will be sideways partially cover by the Kio towers. The only thing i dislike about the renders are the buildings that are next to the round main building, they have to much of a similar facade I think they should be another color or a completely different solution for them. Convention centers normally feel like big basements with no windows this will be a great spot for expositions or a car show.

I can´t wait for the Operación Chamartín to kick off next to this building

The mix of high quality architecture, 1,2 million m2 office space, 17.000 homes, a large transportation hub and a central park is very promising. It will also be a great successor for the aging AZCA business district.
