Gallery: Eustáquio Martínez’s Spanish Bus Station Looks Like a Levitati...

A view of the bus corridors: The fact that they are no columns supporting the overhang makes it all the more spectacular and adds to the grandeur. Quoting Gaudí once more, “"Artists do not need monuments erected for them because their works are their monuments."

Intercambiador Padre Anchieta (Interchange Station Padre Anchieta) in Santa Cruz, Tenerife designed by Spanish Architect Eustáquio Martínez, features a great combination of contrasting textures and subtle colors that highlight the bright green buses. The overhang of the top-heavy structure lends it some drama, making it look as if it were floating in the air. The fact that they are no columns supporting the overhang adds to the grandeur.

We love the vibrancy the bright red cavities add to the building. In the words of Antoni Gaudí, the father of modern Spanish Architecture, “Color in certain places has the great value of making the outlines and structural planes seem more energetic”, a thought that Arch. Eustáquio Martínez seems to have incorporated beautifully in his design.
