This video illustrates the construction process of the Reader's House, Antón García-Abril and Ensamble Studio's project, which occupies two of the warehouses of Matadero-Madrid, the Old Slaughter House in Madrid. The beams are bridges, aerial streets, vectors of activity. In opposition to the basilica-like structure of the warehouses, longitudinal, light and metallic, the new structures are inserted-through the windows and sew the space transversally, giving unity to the complex formed by the warehouses 13 and 14, which were previously independent buildings . The lower level participates, without losing its essence, of the rhythm marked by the upper level.
