Puerta de Europa Towers, Madrid Spain


Philip Johnson and John Burgee designed the Gate of Europe or Torres KIO towers in Madrid Spain. The 115m towers tilt toward each other at a 15° slant. Structural steel with diagonal, vertical and horizontal members surround a vertical reinforced core. Crisp metal is filled with dark glass with a red gridded imprint. The post-modern design is classic Philip Johnson. Each tower has a helicopter pad atop, one red and one blue.
