So one of the biggest unemployment rate in Spain's history is not that worse?

Spain has always had a pretty high unemployment rate, even in economic boom. In the early 90s it was rather similar and the country was growing fast. Unemployment rates and the state of the economy don't neccessarily go hand in hand in Spain's case.

...

Anyway, Madrid has some fabulous projects as usual.

What I hope is that the recent labor laws reforms will help reduce the black/grey economy, which is one of the reason for such a high official unemployment rate.

Having lived in Spain during the boom years and having seen the size of the grey/black economy during the good times when the unemployment rate was at 8%, I can only imagine what the situation is today.

Palmesano, thanks for your pictures.


This is a new neighbourhood in the outskirts of the city and going to the airport. It´ll be a residencial area. I like the urbanism and some of the buildings there.

what??????

I didn't say that, I say that the country is not stopped. There are lot of people that still working, more than the people without work, and lot of people is working in black. It seems that there are people that wants to think that we are died, and it is the worst for a country, we have to be optimist and have hope and belive in ourselves. I have seen some projects that are being resumed in canary islands, madrid and balearic islands, so it is good and we should say that in public, why no one talks about the exportacions of the country?? just because there are good news?? They don't want you to know the good news, because if you know that the country still alive, they, would not be able to cut everything, destroying our health system and the public education.

If you believe in the lies and manipulation of the reality by the media and governments, they will do everything they want

didn't think so, all the reforms that they have done just worse the the work laws, damaging the workers, because they haven't done any reform to help the little company to contract more people or to be able to pay a reasonable taxes in reference to what his company wins

I agree, residential buildings in Spain are among the ugliest in Europe. This has been the trend since mid-20th century. People seem to like to live in ugly cities and buy wathever any untalented architect/developer has to offer.

42 Social Housing in the New District of Barajas / B10+N Architects

Architects: B10+N Architects
Location: Madrid, Spain
Architect In Charge: Marta Barrera Matilla, Alfredo Diez Torre, Fernando Nieto Fernández
Project Year: 2011
Photographs: Miguel de Guzmán
Collaborators: Alberto Aragoneses Calvo, José Luis Carriedo Tardáguila, Valladares Ingeniería S.L.

The building of 42 social housing is situated on a triangular-shaped plot in the new district of Barajas, plot that results from the intersection between the diagonal street at south-western edge of the new urban extension and the orthogonal grid characteristic of this urban planning. This intersection generates half-surfaced plots that are located in edge position.

Although L solutions were possible, the project proposes a single linear piece parallel to the main access road, freeing up as much space as possible for the back garden.

The building seeks to take advantage of this boundary situation, and reflect somehow that transitional character with a “double” approach where all dwellings have the same benefits: double cross ventilation -opposite facades-, double orientation -to northeast and southwest-, double view -to the main street and the back garden-, double character in the end.

This dichotomous approach is emphasized from the configuration of the housing cell, with a clear program statement according to two types of facades. On the one hand, behind the facade to the street the daytime areas are located, with large windows protected by cantilever slabs for solar protection in summer, and a system of booklet opening shutters. On the other, the night time areas are faced to the back garden with smaller vertical windows, where the facade translates different dwelling types in a mixed picture of incoming and outgoing volumes.

The garage is partially buried, and intends to emphasize its character as a kind of main reception place in this type of urban planning, enjoying daylight and cross ventilation through three large holes which connect it again with both situations, the public street and the private garden.

The owner of Las Vegas Sands, Sheldon Adelson, names Madrid as the chosen city to host his new mega proyect intented for the european market, EuroVegas Sands. The first phase of the project is scheduled to be finished in 2016, and the last phase in 2025, the macro complex will host 12 hotels in the typical Strip like the one in Las Vegas, casinos, convention centres, shopping malls and 3 golf courses.
