En la línea de tiempo de las edificaciones hay muchas vidas diferentes, y todas marcan de alguna manera a las siguientes. Las mismas construcciones, los mismos paisajes, en momentos diferentes son percibidas de manera diferente; vividas, al fin y al cabo, bajo otras circunstancias. En esas vidas, además de pasar por usos diferentes, transformaciones, abandonos y renacimientos, se pasa por […]
