Day 162 : Madrid

Today I made my way over to the Caixa Forum designed by Herzog & de Meuron. The project reminded me a bit of the Steedman Competition problem - More or less an adaptive reuse project. From the exterior I found the project to be quite beautiful. Very simple and clean moves that are pretty powerful. It seems like they decided to test similar strategies at their Elbphilharmonie Concert Hall in Hamburg, Germany. As far as the interior goes, well it left a lot to be desired in my opinion.

Pretty awesome party wall...
