Lights  and Shadows a the (former) Slaughterhouse

Matadero Madrid is a former slaughterhouse converted to an arts centre. Built in 1911, it is one of the most singular industrial establishments of 20th-century Madrid architecture. The buildings were in use as a slaughterhouse until 1996 when  Madrid City Council decided to turn this space into a laboratory for contemporary artistic creation.

Architect: Luis Bellido

The beauty of the place is the conceptual simplicity of it all and the faboulous shadows reflected on the pavement if you go there around midday on a very sunny day.
