Cinema Matadero, Madrid

This public cinema centre is a huge arts complex made up of several old slaughterhouse buildings, housing a film archive, a film and television studio, offices, two cinemas, various exhibition spaces, a canteena and a summer film patio. Designed by Churtichaga and Quadra Salcedo architects (ch&qs Architects). The Cinematique is devoted almost exclusively to the non-fiction film.

The illuminated giant woven baskets are actually conventional industrial irrigation hoses.

I love the shock of completely contemporary, theatrical interior within an historic shell.

A common non architectural material looks so precious because of clever illumination.

I would be looking forward to the end of the film to see the giant basket illuminated once again.
