In this first article in a series illustrating some of the interesting architectural or other features of national statistical offices and their work, we take a look at the Spanish Statistical Office, INE, in Madrid.
The INE building was renovated in 2007. The colourful, mosaic-like facade was designed by Pepe Cruz Novillo, a leading Spanish designer, painter, sculptor and engraver who has helped modernise the image of several leading Spanish organisations.
The aim of the colour scheme was to show, on the outside of the building, 58 of the main statistical indicators that are calculated on the inside.
