Thanks for your old pictures of the place Wapo.

This is the new cultural center by the river.

There are many old buildings that are being restaured, some of them are finished and others will be along this year.

There´s a theatre, a place to read, to play ping-pong...and many more things.

Wow!

Nothing comes even close to this in Los Angeles. You might have small pockets of similar spaces here and there, but nothing on this scale.

Adaptable re-use has not really picked up in LA like in some other cities with huge areas of abandoned industrial space. The only major thing I can cite is "The Brewery" Art Colony, but it's more of a residential project and is not open to the public.

Can't wait to go back to Spain in August

It´s curious, everybody thinks that the USA are full of places like this everywhere...

"The Brewery" is a residential area for artists?

If you come in august there´ll be more buildings of this project open to the public...I´ll try to find out the information for you Suffice. The whole project will be finished along 2011 so every two months or so they´ll open a new building (a library, an exhibition space, a place for desing, for computers...)

The new park along the river´ll be completely finished in April 15 th after many years.

I love industrial spaces recicled too.

I would love some more information, thank you.

About the riverside park - looks fabulous, but the lack of greenery is depression. I imagine it will look x100 better in the summer

In a month more or less, spring arrives to Europe actually, so, trees come green, and grass grows all over the territory.

Grass is totally green now, it only turns yellow during 2 or 3 summer months here in Madrid.

There's a lot of greenery but now the trees are too small, we have to wait some years.
In the summer it will be better, trees will be green -now the trees hasn't leafs because of the winter- and also the grass (there is irrigation in all the Madrid city parks).

In many places the grass is still growing and will be green in some weeks, and some things have to be finished in one month.

FOr example the left part of the first picture has to be planted and the grass around the stars at the right has to grow.
So it´ll only improve in a little time. Nothing after years of construction.

Yo creo que con esta obra se cambia el concepto de Madrid como ciudad.




























La llamada playa de Madrid en obras.





La zona del palacio.









La zona del invernadero y el matadero.
