Caixa Forum

Herzog & de Meuron

Madrid, Spain


An arts and cultural center fusing the hollowed brick shell of an old industrial structure with contemporary materials and an innovative reworking of the site.


The building's exterior immediately engages with it's high contrast materials and hidden entrance As you are drawn under the floating brick mass of the lower floors and into the gleaming angular steel stairwell the galleries provide consecutive reveals into the upper floor where piercings in the rusted steel facade scatter luminous shapes throughout the space.
