Intempo is a 47-floor, 192-metre-high skyscraper building in Benidorm, Spain. The design of the building was officially presented on 19 January 2006 and work began in 2007. Originally scheduled for completion in 2009, work was significantly hampered by the economic crisis of 2008 which seriously affected the real estate sector in Spain. Construction was completed in March 2014.HeightIt is the tallest building in the city of Benidorm, the tallest in Spain outside Madrid, one of the tallest in the world for a city of less than 100,000 inhabitants, and the tallest residential structure in Spain.StructureThe building consists of two parallel towers separated by a gap of and connected by a cone-shaped structure between floors 38 and 44. Its frontal view, vaguely resembling the number 11 and the letter M, has led commentators to speculate about a possible reference to the terrorist attacks of 11 March 2004 in Madrid. It is one of the few skyscrapers in the world which has the shape of an arch (another in Europe being the Grande Arche in Paris). The façade of the building will be glass, a first for a residential building in Benidorm.ProblemsThe architects, Perez Guerra and Olcina and Raduan, resigned.While reports that the building did not include elevator shafts were false, poor planning has led to unsafe working conditions for the builders, construction outpacing design, and a construction elevator collapse which injured several of the thirteen workers aboard. Efforts to assist these people were hampered by design flaws which did not permit emergency vehicles onto the building site.
