Floating building and vertical garden

Monday, December 27, 2010

The Caixa Forum Madrid by Herzog & de Meuron is an architectural gem.  The architects lifted the building off the ground, inviting visitors to come inside and enjoy the exhibits.

A 24 meter high vertical garden grows along an entire wall.  It helps create a perfect dialogue between the brick building and the verdant Paseo del Prado.

The main entrance/gift shop is shiny and inviting.

The staircase is also very photogenic.

Up on the top is a cafe and the restaurant Arturo, where shadows like in this picture fill the floors.
