Urban illness.


We are back. Back with urban damages like the one you can "appreciate" in this picture. Winner of an architectural competition the young authors do not know to realize it in the urban context. Who is to blame? The jury, the architects, the promotor? I do not know. It looks like a conversion of an old building whose green garden had been converted into a (beautiful) metalic fence.

Welcome back HACHE and company!
I haven't see this building yet but I can't believe it's located in Hortaleza street. It's more like ones in new neiborhoods like Las Tablas, Sanchinarro, etc.
An interesting shot. Makes me think.
Have a nice weekened
