A shantytown on fire. Funky blaring. The crisis in the mortgage system. Victorian England. Nests, burrows,  caves and mansions. 42,879 foreclosures in Spain in 2011. Brickland. The horror. A banker smiling. A builder smiling. Homesickness. Much video. Much more live video. Tahitian paradises. The right to housing. The right to have air conditioning. The right to have a plasma TV. And Marlon Brando performing John Brickman. Neither more nor less. Agrupación Señor Serrano presents Brickman Brando Bubble Boom, a stage biopic on the life of Sir John Brickman, the largest builder of nineteenth-century England, and a visionary man who inspired the first mortgage system in history. And a portrait of Marlon Brando, a savage actor in search of a home.

Architecture and design.  New York,  29/09/2014
More than a century after Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí began working on The Expiatory Church of the Holy Family, La Sagrada Familia remains under construction. Originally situated on the outskirts of the city, La Sagrada Familia today serves as the enduring symbol of Barcelona. But unlike the Eiffel Tower or Brooklyn Bridge, Barcelona's icon is still a work in progress and a magnetic center of spiritual life.
