Yeah to me this looks like a building that will not age well.... It looks to simple and crude to be long-lasting. I'm sure in 30 years they'll look to replace it or at least totally renovate it

A bookshop that was opened last Christmas very near that building at Gran Vía. Madridhere posted these pictures in the Spanish forum.

It´s been made inside an old noble building. They had a chapel inside the house, frescoes, etc, as you can see.

Y en el techo esto.





Como véis había una capilla en esta casa.







Ya desde el segundo piso nos asomamos para ver el ciprés.



Y también se ve la cúpula de la capilla por fuera (detalle que me ha parecido increíble).






Detalle del antiguo descansillo de la casa. Eso eran puertas bonitas y no lo que se hace ahora jajaja.







Y salimos, pero antes nos tomamos algo en la cafetería.





Un sitio muy recomendable para tomar un café, ver libros, cómics y ver el sitio, y comprar lo que más os guste.

En estas naves grandes habían organizado el evento. No conseguí saber de qué trataba el evento.









Uno de los miles de rincones y recovecos del local. Eso fue una de las cosas que más me gustó.




Aquí está la cafetería.




Los alrededores creo que quedan muy bien integrados con este edificio, entre el estilo industrial del Caixafórum y el clásico de las viviendas.







Bueno, pues a ver qué os parece.

Actually Brutalism is becoming more and more popular again as an architectural style. Lots of new ones have been built. People seem to be more open about it since so many talented 21st century architects have begun to innovate with their concrete use and create awesome buildings. Also technology has massively grown since the last brutalist boom so they're becoming more easy to maintain.

Even the example in the above post has some brutalist interior design. And that corten steel is gorgeous...

Las Vegas Sands Abandons $30 Billion Spanish Casino Proposal

Las Vegas Sands Corp. (LVS), the casino company controlled by billionaire Sheldon Adelson, abandoned a plan to build a mega-resort in Spain for more than $30 billion and will focus on Asia instead.

“We do not see a path in which the criteria needed to move forward with this large-scale development can be reached,” Adelson said today in a statement. Bloomberg News reported the decision earlier today.

The decision by Sands, the world’s largest casino operator, ends prospects for a development that proponents said would have helped improve Spain’s ailing economy and cut its 26 percent jobless rate. The project, announced in February, would have created Europe’s largest resort, dubbed Eurovegas, in the the Madrid suburb of Alcorcon.
