Really ugly for my taste... But maybe it will be better when constructed? :s

Madrid is a really lovely town, though. It deserves something way better than this!

it's an incredible project, so different to any other. maybe now it looks weird , but i'm sure it'll be so impresive when constructed. it's the kind of building which becomes an icon for a city

I just realized the city approved with this. And I thought the French were obsessed with cheese. Sorry that's a cheap shot. I've never had a problem with building tall in historic cities, as long as it's not ugly. Tough break Madrid.

Well, the ICC isn't going to be built anywhere near the historic area of Madrid.

at least wait to better renders to post your opinion.it's not the first time i read ''eh ,how ugly'' and then when it's built ''eh ,how cool''

i find it something a bit weird but i won't say my opinion until i see better renders or the construction

Well... in fact the towers are quite simple buildings, they're just the kind of building you can find in any other city in the world. But this one's unique, original, and it WON'T destroy nothing, it'll densify the area and make a distinctive icon of the modern Madrid

This building's ceilings would be high for a 119-metre building. Does Madrid have a real convention and exhibition centre?
