I would wish my portraits to be of the people, not like them. Not having to look at the sitter, being them. As far as I am concerned, the paint is the person. I want it to work for me just as the flesh does." - Lucian Freud  photo kunsthalrotterdam9a_zps0ff9c97f.jpg  photo LucianFreud006_zps02638611.jpg

Progrés-Raval Health Center

 photo bu1_zpscb73d585.jpg  photo bu1_zps68f2eb9e.jpg The 'Progrés Raval' Health Centre was built in a degraded environment in Badalona on the site of an old glass factory and with the aim, as well as providing health coverage, of enlivening the commercial and social activity of the district. The building was integrated into a new square, opening up a public space that did not exist before. The façade is protected by a ceramic screen providing the building with thermal insulation in order to make it more energy efficient. An outstanding feature is the pillar on the left side of the building, which is the only pillar supporting it on this side. Link here.  photo bu3_zpsd2299c64.jpg
