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.

‘Using the empty gallery as a site on which to stage operatic, all-encompassing mise-en-scene, Kurtz makes an ambitious, multi-part figure installation that throws the facade off human nature – albeit in canine terms. Constructed of unlikely materials such as newspaper, glue, wire and wood, more than 20 dogs of every breed, size and color, strain and cavort off the leash of a single human handler, each rendered more expressively than the next.’ (via Mike Weiss Gallery)
