139. Mercado de Santa Caterina, Barcelona


"The city appears at once brutal and romantic.
Stuffy and cramped yet filled with memories.
The market had to be remodeled in order to bring
back to live its neighborhood. Conducting the traffic
flow from Via Layetana towards the interior of this
area was also essential. Nevertheless, the work was
almost uniquely about designing a roof that would
be able to do all that." (B.Tagliabue)
