The Gate of Europe Towers (Puerta de Europa) are twin office buildings near the Plaza de Castilla in Madrid. Designed by Philip Johnson and John Burgee, the towers were finished in 1996. Each building is 114 m high and has an inclination of 15°, making them the first inclined skyscrapers in the world.

Widok Cementowni Ożarów z galerii zlokalizowanych w bliskim sąsiedztwie Zakładu zasobników paliw alternatywnych. Gromadzone w zasobnikach paliwo o specjalnych parametrach gwarantujących spełnienie warunków technologicznych i norm w zakresie ochrony środowiska trafia wychodzącym na fotografii z dolnego lewego rogu taśmociągiem, który transportuje go do linii wypału klinkieru. Przemysł cementowy jest obecnie bardzo ważnym ogniwem w cyklu utylizacji odpadów. Od lewej najnowszy w Cementowni żelbetowy komin nr 3 obsługujący właśnie nadmienioną linię wypału klinkieru. Na prawo od komina obiekty rejonu "gorącego końca" pieca obrotowego i filtry odpylające gwarantujące maksymalną redukcję emisji pyłowej. Dalej na prawo imponująca swoimi rozmiarami wieża wymienników ciepła w towarzystwie między innymi wieży schładzającej gazów. Sporych rozmiarów silosy po prawej stronie fotografii to silosy homogenizacyjne mączki piecowej. W sumie znajdują się w Cementowni 4 takie silosy zgrupowane w dwóch bateriach - wiąże się to z pierwotnym układem linii wypału klinkieru, składającej się z dwóch pieców o wydajnościach po 3500 ton klinkieru na dobę. Dekadę temu w Cementowni ponownie miał powstać drugi piec obrotowy, jednak realia rynkowe okresu spowolnienia gospodarczego wstrzymały inwestycję, której pamiątką na fotografii są widoczne stalowe elementy w dolnym prawym rogu. Mam nadzieję, że kiedyś druga jednostka piecowa jednak powstanie - ożarowska Cementownia mogłaby się wtedy stać największą w Europie!

Esta es una foto que quería hacer desde hace mucho tiempo pero que nunca hacia.

Paso por aquí a diario pero nunca me decidía a hacerla y es que nunca se daban las condiciones que yo quería para hacerla. Unas veces el cielo estaba plano, sin nubes, otras veces el sol era tan fuerte que los brillos de los edificios me afeaban la foto. A veces cuando tenía un cielo que me gustaba, no me había llevado la cámara. Otras veces no tenía tiempo de pararme a tirar la foto.

Además de todo, me daba un poco de pereza ya que es la típica foto de Madrid que tiene todo el mundo. Es por todo esto que la foto se ha ido retrasando durante años hasta este día.

Espero que guste, por lo menos a mi sí, que al final es lo importante. ;-). Muestra muchos iconos de Madrid, taxis, Torres Kio, CTBA al fondo... lo dicho, la foto que todo turista que viene a Madrid no puede dejar de tener.

Ciemne realia opuszczonego Dworca,

Puerta de Europa son dos rascacielos inclinados de oficinas con una altura de 114 metros y 26 plantas ubicados en la plaza de Castilla de Madrid (España). También son conocidas popularmente como Torres KIO debido a que fueron promovidas en gran medida por la empresa kuwaití KIO, acrónimo de Kuwait Investment Office. Son las segundas torres gemelas más altas de España, tras las Torres de Santa Cruz en Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Están inclinadas la una hacia la otra 14,3 grados con respecto a la vertical y fueron los primeros rascacielos inclinados del mundo.2​ Las torres fueron construidas entre 1989 y 1996 y diseñadas por los arquitectos estadounidenses Philip Johnson y John Burgee. La ingeniería del proyecto corrió a cargo de Leslie E. Robertson Associates y la construcción por Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas.

 

Vistas desde el sur, la torre de la izquierda pertenece a Bankia (anteriormente Caja Madrid) mientras que la torre de la derecha pertenece a la inmobiliaria Realia. Entre las torres discurre el paseo de la Castellana y se encuentra el intercambiador de transportes de Plaza de Castilla.

 

The Gate of Europe towers (Spanish: Puerta de Europa), also known as KIO Towers (Torres KIO), are twin office buildings in Madrid, Spain. The towers have a height of 114 m (374 ft) and have 26 floors. They were constructed from 1989 to 1996. The Puerta de Europa is the second tallest twin towers in Spain after the Torres de Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

  

Gate of Europe in 2014

The Gate of Europe towers were designed by the American architects Philip Johnson and John Burgee, built by Fomento de Construcciones y Contratas[1] and commissioned by the Libyan Investment Office (hence their initial name "Torres KIO" or "KIO Towers"). Leslie E. Robertson Associates, RLLP New York (LERA) provided structural engineering services. Each building is 115 m tall with an inclination of 15°, making them the first inclined skyscrapers in the world. They are located near the Chamartín railway station, on the sides of the Plaza de Castilla bus station, north from the Paseo de la Castellana and near the Cuatro Torres Business Area (CTBA).

The Swan River School House, located at 31 Roe Avenue, East Patchogue, reflects an important part of Long Island's past. This original building dates from 1858 and is one of few such remaining intact. Owned by the Town of Brookhaven, it is managed by the Greater Patchogue Historical Society. The schoolhouse interests visitors young and old. Furnishings include the original desks and benches, pot belly stove, large iron bell (brought indoors after the hurricane of 1938), plus exhibits of realia pertinent to life in the area in olden days.

The Gate of Europe towers (Spanish: Puerta de Europa), also known as KIO Towers (Torres KIO), are twin office buildings in Madrid, Spain. The towers have a height of 114 m (374 ft) and have 26 floors. They were constructed from 1989 to 1996. The Puerta de Europa is the second tallest twin towers in Spain after the Torres de Santa Cruz in Santa Cruz de Tenerife.

They are located near the Chamartín railway station, on the sides of the Plaza de Castilla bus station, north from the Paseo de la Castellana and near the Cuatro Torres Business Area (CTBA).

After the receivership of Grupo Torras, KIO had to sell the buildings, which are now owned by Bankia and Realia.

The west tower has a rooftop helicopter pad outlined in blue; the east tower has a red one.

They played a key role in the 1995 movie The Day of the Beast, whose climax took place on one of the then nearly-completed towers. The towers were also shot in the song sequence "oru koodai sunlight" in the popular Tamil film Sivaji.

From left to right: Bankia and Realia towers (former KIO towers), the TV tower (the Piruli), the 4 towers and the Silken Puerta América Hotel.

This is a lo rez scan of a shot taken with the Mamiya RB67 medium format camera of the rolleiflex and some expired realia 100 film. No photoshop applied, no sharpening nothing.

This is out of camera filmy goodness, I love medium format and I can not believe the sharpness!

Las dos torres que conforman la llamada Puerta de Europa, también conocidas como Torres KIO (debido a que fueron promovidas por la empresa kuwaití KIO, Kuwait Investments Office) son dos torres inclinadas la una hacia la otra, 15° respecto a la vertical, con una altura de 114 m y 26 plantas. La Puerta de Europa son las segundas torres gemelas más altas de España, tras las Torres de Santa Cruz en Santa Cruz de Tenerife. Están situadas en la Plaza de Castilla de Madrid (España), próximas al centro financiero de AZCA.

 

Su construcción dio lugar al caso de estafa de Urbanor que implicó a los Albertos y al Banco Central de España cuando los querellantes (el arquitecto Pedro Sentieri y el constructor Julio San Martín) denunciaron a sus ex socios Alberto Alcocer y Alberto Cortina alegando que obtuvieron más dinero en la operación a pesar de que éstos eran los socios mayoritarios, y que cobraron el pago de Kio en acciones del Banco Central, debido a que la operación había sido instrumentada para lograr el control de dicha entidad.

 

La torre de la izquierda en dirección salida de Madrid se conoce como Puerta de Europa I, en tanto que la otra se conoce como Puerta de Europa II. Para evitar su confusión la primera dispone de un helipuerto pintado en color azul y la segunda en rojo. La torre de la izquierda tiene el logotipo de Caja Madrid, mientras que la torre de la derecha tiene el logotipo de Realia, una empresa inmobiliaria. Este logo fue añadido posteriormente. Su estructura es masiva

Madrid has absolutely everything to offer. How about some modern architecture? Check! ✔

 

By the way, those twin towers are called "Gate of Europe" 🇪🇺

In Madrid for 24 hours on business, but I managed to slip away just long enough to take some shots of the leaning towers of the Puerta de Europa. The two towers lean toward each other at a 15º angle; this is the Caja Madrid building and the sunset behind it, reflected in the windows of the Realia building.

there's a symmetry in our approach

in our nearness or distance

 

in air-conditioning Hong Kong

air thick and humid

 

trace patterns in chiaroscuro

wall window wire washcloth

 

whether we were welcome

to enter and eat tofu

 

there were more than two of us

contemplating corrugation

 

warehouse without virtue

we burn incense

 

stare too long at the window

on the upper floor

 

where something passed

our ghosts left us
