    A little bit of information:

    “The Botin Foundation has established itself in Madrid by choosing a 1920 industrial building in a unique location with the intention of it becoming a cultural reference centre. To do this, the new project retains the spirit of the original industrial character, in keeping with the same philosophy of the Foundation which is a motor for developing talent.

    The main objective of the architectural concept is the use of natural light, infilled windows and skylights have been reopened. The internal structure has been modelled to create a large atrium for the main lobby, where light and natural vegetation combine to create a meeting place.”
