Madrid's four new skyscrapers, sawn of Chamartin's station in the north of the town.

un vrai poster, j'adore cette architecture moderne et le contrasme avec ce vieil immeuble (un résistant ;o)) )

So good to see your new post after, mmmm, let me calculate, 9 days :)

These skyscrapers are so huge. Are any of them ranking in the top 10s?

Oh wow, very impressive! I think they look fantastic! Love the two middle ones — the prism-like shape of one and the dark color of the other. Fabulous architecture.

I like the clean design of these structures. But I like the old style better.

Long time no see.

Hi Tr3nta!
Sorry I couldn’t visit you for the last two weeks! I’m trying to catch-up and see the wonders you have around!
Great shot, but I prefer the Cañas y Tapas... ;)

Meanwhile, one of the most beautiful Forts in India waits you and your comments at Blogtrotter: – The Amber Fort! Enjoy and have a great weekend!

Really looks like architect's playground here, but they've done a good job. I like the second one from the right and the way you've captured them together. Shame that the surroundings are not quite up to par, but who knows, they will be removed one day for more high rise...

Kitty said...

whoa, what a startling image?
You captured a lovely moody sky.

prado said...

Hmm....though I usually prefer more traditional architecture I must say that this one is great! I like it, it's so outrageously modern!

Sophia said...

loving the drama of this picture, it raises so many questions of the impact of modern architecture on its surroundings, everyting about this picture is cold and impersonal, but i love it!
