I only did a quick walk through the building from the Metro through the "inner city", but had to stop several times to admire the architecture and creativity of the different areas visible from the main throughway. I immediately started looking up shows I could actually see here. This will definitely be part of my plans when I return! I LOVE the creative, constructive, unburdened vibes the building gives off!
Amazing place to visit in any season of the year. It is trendy, cozy, and you can find anything you want. Or even just walk and enjoy the environment, alone or with friends or family. Shopping, food, arts exhibitions, I love it!
