Roofing I.


The Second Republic opened the way to the northern extension of the city by demolition of the racecourse. A 1964 competion defined the actual commercial centre called AZCA, with symbolic buildings by architects like Francisco Sainz de Oíza with his BBVA-Bank building (1981) or the Picasso Tower (1988) by New York´s World Trade Center architect Minoru Yamasaki. Behind those you can see the Kia-Towers around Castilla square. In the background the skyline of Madrid´s four megatowers you found lots of pictures in this blog.
