Photographer's Note

Freedom (Libertad) is one of the words written on the outside of this modern hotel, decorated with phrases and words in different languages​​... and this is one of them...

The Hotel Puerta America Madrid (Spain) is at No. 41 Avenue of the Americas, in the Chamartin district.

This five-star hotel, built between 2003 and 2005, was conceived as a collective project of 18 international architects and designers of international renown. Frenchman Jean Nouvel was responsible for the structure and facade, decorated with multicolored fragments of Liberty poem by Paul Eluard in different languages.

Each of the interior of plants is the work of a different author:

Basement (parking): Teresa Sapey.

First: Zaha Hadid.
Second: Norman Foster
Third: David Chipperfield
Fourth: Plasma Studio (E. Castro and H. Kehna)
Fifth: Victorio & Lucchino
Sixth: Marc Newson
Seventh: Ron Arad
Eighth: Kathryn Findlay
Ninth: Richard Gluckman
Tenth: Arata Isozaki
Eleventh: Javier Mariscal and Fernando Salas
Twelfth: Jean Nouvel

Christian Liaigre designed the restaurant, the bar Marc Newson, and Jason Bruges and Arnold Chan took charge of lighting.
