Walden 7

Our urban explorations at la fabrica - 70s found disused cement factory -now the house and studio of the architect ricardo bofill, and walden 7 -his social housing project. a bit terrifying at first but very friendly, open and poetic inside. We were lucky to have the resident walking and talking with us about the everyday life there and how architects vision and philosophy of the building feedback to their lifes. Its clearly not a machine for living, its a beautiful space for community, social interactions and events. every 'street' in the building is named under philosopher or writer as well as its full of aspects of sun moon earth and water.
