EDIFICIO ESPAÑA

EDIFICIO ESPAÑA

The year 2007 saw the start of the renovation of Edificio España, an emblematic building that during the years of Franco’s regime had been a symbol of prosperity. Over two hundred workers from a long list of countries took part in the building works, which gave rise to an unusual collection of anecdotes. The life experience of all those characters became a part of the memories contained by the building structure. A huge Tower of Babel that will bear forever the mark of our times.
