Cultural centre in Madrid
Text: Peter Popp
A former slaughterhouse compound built in the early twentieth century in Madrid is to be transformed by 2011 into a multi-disciplinary cultural centre. The architects Franco + van Teslaar limited their interventions to a bare minimum – probably due in part to a budget of only 700 000 euros. These interventions are clearly legible, and are, in the architects' words, »very few, very rigorous, very clean and very straight«. To this end they employed materials typically used in industrial settings, off-the-shelf, without further processing.
Architects: Arturo Franco + Fabrice van Teslaar, Madrid
