  • When we went to visit the four towers, we left at Begoña Metro station, near the end of the Paseo de La Castillana. From there we spotted the Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria. A Spanish resident gave the explanation that the main building was called Candle, being in the form of a candle. Said to have near 100 meters high and 20 storeys high and will cost something how about 700 million euros. Believed the explanation. Later I found out that the Swiss company who designed the complex won the Pritzker Prize.

  • The BBVA city is a complex of seven buildings that is home to the new headquarters of the Spanish bank Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria. The main building known as La Vela stands in the Centre of the complex and is 93 meters in height and 19 floors. It is located in the neighborhood of Las Tablas in Madrid and is accessible from the A-1(Autovía deel Norte) and M-40 ring road round. It is a complex of eight horizontal three-storey buildings. Horizontal buildings receive the name of a continent called Australasia, Asia, Antarctica, North America, Europe, Africa, South America and Zealand. The streets that separate them are name of the seas and oceans which unite the continents, these being the streets, Pacific, Indian Ocean, Mediterranean, Atlantic and Caribbean. In the Middle sits a circular square of 100 meters in diameter where stands the main building, an irregular elliptical Tower called La Vela. It's a 93 meters in height and 19-story building, with 82 meters in diameter and only 16 meters wide. [2] in order to obtain the shape of sailing a total of 35 different bend radii scattered around the outside of the 19 plants are designed.
