February 2016

Ten years after its construction stopped, the ‘Breaking Old’ building offers an exchange between urban life and rural development with great potential both for its image and its intrinsical characteristics and its location.

Retired elderly people vs. young urbanites and their new mechanisms of production. Breaking Old will be the agent of change for these new realities, the exchange of knowledge and the reconquest of the cities by the countryside.

This project was awarded by Organización del Pabellón de España en la Bienal de Venecia de 2016.
