Architecture: Cineteca Matadero by Churtichaga+Quadra-Salcedo: “..Huge glowing baskets surround the staircases of this former slaughterhouse..converted into a cinema..First constructed at the start of the twentieth century, the Cineteca Matadero was used as an abattoir and livestock market for around 85 years, but is now renovated to accomodate two cinema screens, a film studio, an archive and a terrace for outdoor screenings..The illuminated orange structures dominate the three floors of the film archive, which are otherwise dimly lit and lined with dark grey-painted wood..Woven walls also surround the two auditoriums but are painted black so as not to detract from the screens..”  Interesting reconversion, renovation, refurbishment, inspired materiality, brick, stone, woven walls, in natural and black, wood, interesting interior volumes..
