The Caixa Forum project in Madrid has been shown in brief on L+U before. It is, simply put, an amazing composition, using two complementary materials (red rusted metal panels and green vegetated panels) juxtaposed together with stunning results. Project is by Herzog & de Meuron. Vertical Garden by Patrick Blanc. Image links to Flickr pool are via Dezain.

It’s great to see the in-process shots (thanks to all the Flickr contributors for the images) – and to see how much it’s filled in in a short period of time. If you can’t tell, I’ve been blown away by this project since the first time I saw it. Is there really anything else to say?
