Nos encontramos una tarde de finales de primavera (justo antes del Primavera Sound, que marca el inicio de los festejos estivales) en su estudio. Un rincón donde crear y gestionar Fahrenheit, lugar que comparten con otros creadores como Lantoki, en pleno corazón del Raval barcelonés. Rodeada de bolsos, mochilas y muestrarios de cuero, Andrea me recibe con una sonrisa y un vaso de agua. Ha hecho los deberes y ha respondido la mayoría de las preguntas que le mandamos, aunque la idea es charlar: en directo siempre sale mejor. Sin grabadora ni vídeo, la idea de grabarlo y hacer algo más interactivo me parece fenomenal, así que tendremos que ser un poco más tecnológicos la próxima vez, ya que hoy solo tiraremos de libreta y bolígrafo.
In the outskirts of Barcelona, we find the iconic Walden-7 created by Ricardo Bofill’s architecture studio in the 1970s. The project was conceived as an utopian attempt to build a communal building, a city inspired by the kasbahs in Morocco and bee hives. It was designed by a multidisciplinar group of professionals ranging from engineers and architects, to psychologists and philosophers. They tried to come up with the perfect community, a building adapted to its environment and its people, a building that could strengthen the bonds between neighbors.

Deep in the heart of Barcelona there is a unique building, a shinning white pearl surrounded by the old town streets: the MACBA (Museu d’Art Contemporani de Barcelona), a work by the American architect Richard Meier. The vicinities are burning with life and cheer, a place where all kinds of people gather to skate or to enjoy the sun mirrored in the glazed walls of the museum.
As Morticia Addams would say: Black is such a happy color, darling.
We completely agree with her. Black represents the Yin, invites us to mystery, reflexion and the occult. It is the color of the ocean at night and makes you feel effortlessly elegant, comfortable and incredibly sexy.
