This will be the new Paseo del Prado by ALvaro SIza:









Now there are 8 ways for the cars and they will be reduced to 6, concentrating the pedestrian areas, so it will become a place much better to walk.

Madrid is becoming one of the most advanced cities in terms of design and “futurible” buildings!!!! But does human bean like all these colours? Do we really need to be always shocked? ;-)

Thanks for your comments, guys. Glad you like some or all of the projects.


Here there are some pix of Telefónica Headquarters taken by incredible TIntoretto. Thanks to him.




















I have deleted the pix of Telefónica of a former post to avoid repeating as these ones are more recent and the building is practically finished.
