Mercat De La Salut Square in Badalona, Spain by vora arquitectura

Wednesday, February 16th, 2011

The project for the “La Salut” Market Square emerged from a study of the context: the topography, the architecture… but also from the memory, the collective imagery… a process of observation and analysis, which generates some abstract ideas that make a form, a distribution, some spatial relationships, a way of living and working… and bring us to the materiality of this intervention, materiality understood as the superimposition of identities, underlying realities and permanent memory.
