Reeds + rushes

Last Saturday I joined an excursion that Openhouse had organised to visit Casa La Ricarda, a gem of mid twentieth century architecture just a few kilometers from Barcelona’s city centre. I took lots of pictures, too many to share with you in one post, so today I’ll be showing you those that I took of Casa La Ricarda – the outside.

Angles and lines

Happy Monday! A new week, new projects on the go and a new building that I recently spotted in the neighborhood (at the lower part of the Raval, on Carrer del Portal de Santa Madrona).

Allow me to show you…
