Zaragoza is such a fascinating place, it has wonderful monuments for all - beautiful Mudejar castle, magnificent Basilica del Pilar, Cathedral, fine buildings, but also fantastic modern architecture. I recommend to visit it - you will not be disappointed.
Here the building not shown on TE and I found it attractive with these colours.

The Aragonese Institute of Contemporary Art and Culture (IAACC), popularly known as the Pablo Serrano Museum, is a center dedicated to modern and modern art, which has as its founding repertoire a large collection of works by the Aragonese sculptor Pablo Serrano (1908 - 1985). In addition, thanks to the private collection Circa XX (attached in 2013), there are examples of well-known Spanish and foreign artists from throughout the 20th century, from Emil Nolde, Pablo Picasso and Calder to Warhol, Jean Tinguely and Anthony Caro.

Quite a discovery in my walking around the town without goal. I wonder if Paul and Ryszard saw it.

Bigger beta picture

Traditionally, two more pictures as Workshops.

Hello MAlgo ,
Not sure about the architecture , but in term of sahpes and colors , an amazing building , no doubt . Splendid contrast with the polarized blue sky .

Hello Malgo,
This town had evolved to modern city in recent years, when we passed through in 03/2000 there were almost no tall buildings in its skyline.
From your picture I learn how this was changed.
Vivid picture of the attractive blue building.
My best regards,

Hello Malgo,
I find it a bit difficult to take good photos of architecture. It's not they style I am used to, but you are more into that kind of photography and you did well here. It's an interesting, original and quite beautiful building. Partly thanks to the cars you found a lot of colours for this view, even though the turquoise tower against the dark blue skye would have been quite enough.
Kind regards,

Hello Malgo,
Wow, that is really one eye-catching piece of modern architecture. Both in terms of shape and of course its bright light blue facade it really stands out against its surroundings. The sunlight was very favourable too and you managed to squeeze everything into an excellent vertical composition too.

Hello Malgo,
We are off on our Spanish adventure on Thursday, coming back via Zaragoza, so I will make a point of looking out for this ultra-modern building. The angular lines and the colour contrasts make for an interesting graphical composition. The image is well framed and has superb colours and clarity. I like the inclusion of the framing shrub.

Hello Malgo,

A very modern architecture with the great balcony and high tower with blue colour.
Also the cars showing a nice daily life picture.
Composition and presentation are excellent done.
Very well done, TFS.

Have a nic eday,

Hello Malgo,

This is the remodelated museum, it is a good image of this interesting building, light and colors are beautiful, well done,

Best regards,


Hello Malgo
I googled to know the architect of this fascinating building for especially the high turquoise tower has some similarity with a part of the Groninger museum.
Maybe José Manuel Pérez Latorre was inspired by Mendini, we never know. Many architect like it to “quote” their great colleagues.
Anyway an excellent picture of a remarkable building.
Have a nice day, groet Rob

Czesc Malgosiu!

The parked red cars in the fg provide the perfect complimentary opposites to the blue cyan facade of this distinctive futuristic looking building. Good sharpness and framing. Tfs!

Hello Malgo,
Very remarkable architecture, both in terms of shape and colour.
The turquoise facade of the IAACC goes well with the deep blue sky.
The bottom of the picture is with the red cars and motorbike completed with more vivid colour.
Best regards, Paul

Hi Malgo,ok,this is a fest of colors,in particular the blue,but you pump up the saturation over the limits for me....the effect is great but unreal in the same time. No problem,the post is very interesting and the architechtural style of the museum too,useful WS especially the different view of the 2nd. Have a nice evening and thanks,Luciano.

Hi Malgo,
Interesting and photogenic view with these vivid colors, well taken and presented, perfect contrast, tfs.

Good morning,
Amazing colors in your city scene. Amazing shapes and volumes, well seen.


Hello Malgo,
une photo d'architecture contemporaine, bien composée avec la végétation.
Bon contraste des couleurs.

Hello Malgo,

This is a building intended to be noticed!
It is big, bold and beautiful!
By including the f/g vehicles, you have given us a true sense of scale so we can marvel at its height as well as its modern, original design.

Have a good day,
Bev :-)

il titolo è appropriato alla foto, i colori sono veramente forti, la foto risalta nella galleria.
Mi piace molto anche la vista dal giardino.

Hello Malgorzata,

wonderful architecture perfectly presented here with your picture. The blue sky is simply amazing, especially with this dark rainy sky we have today here in Luxembourg. I like your contribution to TE here very much.Tfs.

With regards from Luxembourg


Hallo Malgo,
fantastische Farben, blau in blau, gut gemacht!
Einen schönen Tag

Hi Malgo
wow, this is quite the colourful place isn't it.
its so CUBE-Like in its design, sort of like a piece of modern art or abstract art. Funky, cool, risky, i love it.
Good to see you back!
I go back to New York City June 13th for 6 nights :)
