# architecturebluebuildingcityd5100españaeuropemadridnikonskyspainsunsettravel #palimetakis (December 23, 2015 at 12:09 PM) The Crystal Palace is a glass and metal structure located in the Buen Retiro Park in Madrid. It was built in 1887 to exhibit flora and fauna of the Philippines. The architect was Ricardo Velázquez Bosco. The Crystal Palace in the form of a Greek cross is made almost entirely from a set of glass in an iron frame on a brick base decorated with ceramics. Its dome makes the structure exceed 22 meters in height. The architecture was influenced by the structural glass and iron techniques of Joseph Paxton (who was responsible for the Crystal Palace in London and also for the greenhouses such as the Palm House in the gardens of Kew). The structure was designed in a way that would allow it to be re-erected elsewhere (as was the case with the equivalent building in London). However, the building has remained in the original site next to a lake and has been restored to its original appearance. It is no longer used as a greenhouse and is currently used for art exhibitions. - Architectures
