Torres Blancas

Torres Blancas is a must-visit building for Architectural lovers. Designed by famous Spanish architect Francisco Javier Sáenz de Oiza is said to be an example of " Spanish Organicism" . The structure serves as an apartment complex at a height of 71m. Construction started in 1964 and finished five years later in 1969. The reinforced concrete design was considered an innovation at the time for using cylindrical shaped cast-in concrete instead of the typical rectilinear qualities of cast-in place concrete. It is still considered one of the landmarks of Europe's modern architecture.
