I always liked this modern building at 46 Paseo de la Castellana. Good on large / z / full screen, etc.

I always liked this modern building at 46 Paseo de la Castellana. Good on large / z / full screen, etc. 

And yet it's not as modern as it looks, being constructed in 1975 by architects José Antonio Corrales Gutiérrez and Ramón Vásquez Molezún. Built with pink granite from local quarries, bronze-coloured glass and red coloured anodised aluminium, it currently houses the offices of the European Parliament in Madrid and the Irish Embassy.

It really is a very colourful building isn't it? I do love the grading of the orange tiles.

Yes it's very attractive. I don't blame the Irish for choosing this place for their embassy!
