Besós Cathedral


Some months ago there was some discussion about demolishing thetermic power plant of Sant Adrià del Besós, no longerin use, for aesthetic reasons. Well, I’ve always admired the pureelegance of the three chimneys against the Maresme landscape and, ifthe authorities were so worried about aesthetics, they should dynamite the whole “Diagonal Mar” quartier, the outcome of theworst urbanism in Barcelona since the 60s atrocities.

The building is not the only attraction of the so called “Besos  Cathedral”, anonymous artists have left there works whose interest far exceeds what can be usually found at MACBA museum.
