We live in an […]

The intelligence of the desire | Miquel Lacasta

5.0 01 For the important matters, the educations come from very remote places. I think that the architecture is an important matter, and because of it it is suitable to find in places, sometimes distanced from what one thinks, small pearls that help us to give body to our reflections. One of these remote interesting educations comes from the Danish […]
