Study Trip 2018 – Madrid

May 25th, 2018


This year’s study trip took Re-Format to Madrid in Spain. Unlike many historic capitals Madrid was selected to become Spain’s political centre in the 1560s primarily due to its central location. Herzog and De Meuron’s Caixaforum museum was the studio favourite (especially as we had lunch in the roof top restaurant). The trip was finished off with a visit to the amazing Barajas airport by Richard Rogers, completed back in 2004 but still fresh and immaculate.
