Market, Barcelona, Spain

Friday, December 02, 2005


My boss showed me a market today. Santa Caterina market in central Barcelona by Architect EMBT.
"Seven years in the making, the renovated Santa Caterina market in central Barcelona is a glorious thing. Here is a retail food market, utterly unlike a morgue-like British supermarket, glistening with fresh fish and seafood, bloody with skinned rabbits and poultry, gleaming with fruit and vegetables, set under a suitably theatrical roof. Appropriate, not just because the newly re-opened market is a the kind of vivid public space dreamed of by soulful city planners and big-spirited architects, but also because this is the city of Gaudi, the saintly patron of a much-admired urban culture that thrives on surrealism in architecture." to find out more...
