Madrid: Construction Funk

Yes, everyone knows, Spain is now the world leader in funky, futuristic urban architecture, and Madrid of course is at the forefront. These guys are really out to prove something.

Though I missed the Calatrava bridges and Herzog & De Mueron buildings, I did catch at glimpse of the architectural funk near Castilla De La Mancha on one sunny afternoon

And Terminal 4 at Madrid Barajas Airport. Never have so many curves and waves found their way together on one airport ceiling. Fabuloso !

But of course, there is no shortage of glorious old architecture in Madrid

Including the place I stayed at: Hotel Alcazar on Gran Via


Sudden bursts of enchanting music in the subway

Chorizo and Dali, Anchovies and Picasso

Breakfast of Champions

Jamon Jamon everywhere

Constructivist Funk

Sun one Day, Snow the next
