The Nature-Inspired Glass Pavilion in Cuenca, Spain is a Geometric Masterpiece

cue00-1

This Glass Pavilion is a new entertainment complex in Cuenca, Spain that aims to serve as a transitional space between the city and its surrounding natural landscape. Designed by Madrid-based Moneo Brock Studio, the glass and steel exterior of the structure embraces a look inspired by the wooded terrain seen around the Jucar and Moscas Rivers. The geometrical patchwork resembles a roof of glassy leaves covering the interior space that houses an ice-skating rink, performance space, bars, and restaurants. Next time I’m in Spain I have to make sure I remind myself to check this work of art out!
