Caixa Forum information
This extraordinary structure down towards the southern end of the Paseo del Prado, is one of Madrid's most eye-catching architectural innovations. Seeming to hover above the ground, this brick edifice is topped by an intriguing summit of what looks like rusted iron. On an adjacent wall is the jardín colgante (hanging garden), a lush vertical wall of greenery almost four storeys high. Inside there are four floors of exhibition and performance space awash in stainless steel and with soaring ceilings. The exhibitions here are always worth checking out and include cover photography, painting and multimedia shows. But the building itself is always worth checking out regardless of what's on.
