Abandoned Toyo Ito

Back in 2006, the Torrevieja Relaxation Park in Spain was built to be a landmark in the City and a referent in contemporary architecture, but its actual state is just the opposite.

Thanks to Abitare I got into this article that shows how the building is already in ruins just 4 years after its realization. The original project contained three buildings in the coasts of Torrevieja, but the Coast management department stopped the project, leaving it to the disuse consequences. Now Torrevieja has a landmark, but was this what they expected?
