"Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand." –Dr. Albert Einstein "Wonder is comes from the awareness of ignorance of religious mass"
Philip Johnson and John Burgee designed the Gate of Europe or Torres KIO towers in Madrid Spain. The 115m towers tilt toward each other at a 15° slant. Structural steel with diagonal, vertical and horizontal members surround a vertical reinforced core. Crisp metal is filled with dark glass with a red gridded imprint. The post-modern design is classic Philip Johnson. Each tower has a helicopter pad atop, one red and one blue.
