Escaldes-Engordany


Andorran architecture is becoming more and more modern. New buildings today represent the youngest and most innovative spirit of the country. In Escaldes-Engordany you will find some examples.

  • Caldea

Caldea was designed by French architect Jean-Michel Ruols, a water architecture specialist and master of the paradoxical art of building solid elements from a liquid element such as water. The immense project initially covered 31,000 m2 , including a 6,000 m2 dome running 80 metres high and 65 metres wide, and required advanced building techniques normally seen in large cities.

The current building has been extended to house the new Inúu centre. The idea behind INÚU was to continue the shape of the existing spa centre building making for perfect synergy and maximum integration of the new extension, but with a touch of modernity thanks to evolving construction techniques and materials. By combining architecture and water, Ruols has managed to provide the building with a global, coherent and harmonious architectural image.
