This week is one of the most exciting of the year in relation to the architecture in Madrid, where I live. Is the Madrid Architecture’s Week. Madrid is opened literally; museums, towers, churches, centers of exhibitions, universities, studios of architecture…everything is boiling these days. Because Madrid is special, and it’s not only for being my city of birth, Madrid it´s a magical city.
Yesterday, I was talking about Amsterdam and his powerful constrastes, but Madrid isn’t less. Ok, we don’t have channels, but we have the biggest royal palace of every western europe, one of the most important museums arround the world, an endless number of parks and green spaces, which jewel of the crown is our Retiro’s park. Apart, Madrid has a few enviable transport, from the Baraja´s airport, to his enormous subway network, which facilitates that Madrid is a city that never sleeps.
I think that Madrid is the great stranger, we have many things to offer, between them, our architecture. For it I would like to show a bit of the architectural and urban development evolution of Madrid throughout the time. But Madrid has a long history, so step by step =)
