contributed by Mieke

This 22 level building, called Mirador, is located in Sanchinarro, a residential suburb on the north east edge of Madrid surrounded by highways and with views towards the Guadarrama Mountains. The most impressive element of the building is the incredible gap of it shape, which acts as a frame for the distant landscape. The large communal plaza and lookout at 40 m above the ground is meant to be used by the neighborhood as a meeting area and playground. The Mirador contains a wide variety of compact housing types, in total 156 units. The architects created a distinctive silhouette by grouping nine blocks. The articulation of these blocks is apparent in the exterior palette, equal parts stone, concrete and tile. The strips of red indicate the corridors. The way the nine blocks are stacked and glued together, they make up a new towering impressive 'superblock' (MVRDV). Blanca Lleó asociados from Madrid were responsible for directing the works.

Fancy, but bad quality living space.

Blanka says:
Fancy block, but the area stinks. Just like a gated-comunity Beijing extension, and far from the quality urban space in central madrid or 60's and 70's areas. Even the architecture in those areas is better. Too bad its not on Mimoa yet. I'll post some projects from the golden architecture years in Madrid back home.

For those that tried to sneak in, to get into the void, and couldn't make it: Try it on a Sunday.
