After long hours at Reina Sofia museum time for going to Outer Space. It’s called NuBel and it makes you wonderfully dizzy. Or, better, go there just before the museum - drink some wine and go to admire Guernica in 3D.
Hey ho, my name is Jo.
I’m an illustrator based in Wroclaw, Poland, collaborating with the clients around the world, such as The Guardian, ELLE Italia or Opéra National de Paris.
Can’t live without traveling, palm trees and prosecco.
Museo ABC de Dibujo e Ilustración is a building with history. It is located in Amaniel street, one step away from Conde Duque Center, in a building that in 1891 would be the first Mahou beer factory in Madrid. It was designed by José López Salaberry, an architect who was intensely and extensively linked to the new city planning of Madrid in the beginning of the 20th century.
Forms part of the city’s historical essence and it is in direct relation with the neighborhood, so that since its beginnings, it is thought as a center which is dynamic, open to society and in charge of disseminating and preserving its art treasures.
This is a fabulous Hotel called Silken Puerta América, where each floor is designed by a different architect. It is open for public visiting. This year the Hotel was hosting the art fair Just Madrid and I was totally amazed by the first floor design of my favorite architect Zaha Hadid.
The city’s old slaughterhouse, now an art centre. It’s a monumental project that somehow manages to survive the financial crisis. They organize interesting exhibitions, talks and other activities. The perfect excuse to go for a walk around the southern side of Madrid.
Barajas Airport is so inspiring, a vibrating place to come and go. Love to walk in its roller stairs and watch the organic columns and the wavy ceilings changing colors from blue to yellow designed by the architects Richard Rogers and Estudio Lamela.
Conde Duque is a contemporary creation center, a nice place to go to see concerts and expositions. It always has an interesting program going on.
Every year several design and dance festivals are held and in summer you can enjoy a summer cinema.
Conde Duque has become an essential pillar of Madrid’s cultural activity. It is proud to be one of the city’s three large metropolitan cultural centres, alongside Matadero Madrid Contemporary Arts Centre and CentroCentro.
Conde Duque can be found in the university district, or Universidad, right in the centre of Madrid. Universidad is an area that stands out for two great reasons: for its wide and rich heritage and for its concentration of cultural activity.
