The Building that Floats
The optic effect of this building really makes one think that it is floating. In spite of its solid form, one thinks that invisible threads hold in the air the CaixaForum in Madrid. I simply loved this place. I walked around its exterior many times observing the architectural work and design and trying to figure out from where it’s held.
It is an interesting way of recovering and reusing another building (an old electric station) and of bettering and taking advantage of useless spaces. The building is already impressive from outside, but the real treat is the vertical garden inside. At the end, one doesn’t know if one came to enjoy an exhibit or just the building. In my case it was a combination of both.
