Puerta de Europa (Gateway to Europe, left and right), Madrid, Spain. These twin towers were built in 1996 by Kuwait Investments Office (KIO) and were designed by American architects Philip Johnson and John Burgee. Each building is 115 metres tall with an inclination of 15 degrees and they mark the beginning of Madrid's business district. The statue in front of the towers is a monument to Jose Calvo Sotelo (1893-1936), one of the most important right-wing political figures in Spain, whose murder led to the Spanish Civil War. Photographed in 2000.
