Photographer's Note

I am shocked that I am posting the first ever photo of the Cultural Centre (Caixa Forum) in Zaragoza. I checked all 29 pages that exist on TE from this city.

Having seen the amazing modern architecture from Zaragoza on TE, I made sure this city was on my to-see-list when I went to Spain.

Malgo, Juan (JFS), Sacimar, Snunney, PaulVDV, and Rychem are some of the most recent TE members who have posted photos from this cool city. Yet I couldn't find one of this amazing building.

Please check the WS for 2 other angles. This angle you see now is VERY misleading, check the other shots to see how it stands from across the street.

Here i'm pointing straight UP with my ultra wide angle 8-16mm lens to dramatic visual effect, and I love it. To make it even better, a man with a walking cane made his presence felt.

Try to find this same section from the WS view :)

The city has many mid 1950's 60's ugly stone architecture, and I love that as well. Zaragoza has such a mixture of old and modern buildings. The old seem to be of the "Brutalism" style (yes, an actual term), and I'll show you some of those in later posts. Brutalism architecture is mostly solid concrete, grey, lacking artistic flare and design. Zaragoza also seems to have what looks like many Communism style architectural buildings.

Then you have these amazing new modern styles, what an interesting mix. Spend 2 days here and you'll be happy you did!
