    Description

    As an allegorical tribute to Spanish painting, Atocha station’s glass façade fluctuates in the colors of the grand Masters. Fragments of orange, magenta pink, vermilion and carmine collected on Goya and Velazquez’s paintings, exhibited at the Prado, set fire to the Art Nouveau façade of the building.
