I absolutely adore those architects who can implement their ideas sustainably in the surrounding native area. there ability to see in ugly unpleasant place the real beauty. Using their imagination they can transform it into incredibly unique space.
One of those people is Spanish artist and architect Cesar Manrique.
This is typical landscape after volcanic eruption:
Cheerless isn't it? Volcano that erupted in 1730-36 at Lanzerote left after so called volcanic bubbles. These bubbles Cesar Manrique decided to use for home.
Upper level of the house is build in typical for Lanzarote style:
|Gates with sign CM - Cesar Manrique|
|White room in day light|
|White room at night|
Look at this cool swimming pool!! I'd like to swim there:
In the upper level where previously were the main rooms of the house, now are the galleries of the museum. Privet collection of Cesar Manrique includes works of Picasso, Miro, Chillida, Guerrero, Chirino, Sempere and others.
