Warehouse 17c Matadero Madrid
Warehouse 17c Matadero Madrid is an ongoing project of new spaces for artistic creation that doesn't fit into traditional spaces; comparable to 'Palais de Tokyo' in Paris and 'PS 16' in New York. Started in 2006, the expected completion of the renovation of this former slaughterhouse Arganzuela is 2011. The project serves as an opportunity to explore renovation possibilities, reducing the intervention to a necessary minimum but with maximum expressivity. No clean cuts, but raw joints and as simple as possible. Materials come straight from the industrialization, unchanged and in standard measurements; eventually ready for reuse.
