      I lol’ed so hard at ‘remixed’. Really though, can we even call this “inspired”? This looks undeniably a rip-off to me. Similar design – just downscaled, similar composition, similar colors. D:

        The “original-copy” dualism seems to me a very huge topic nowadays (see Venice Biennale).

  2. Thumb up Thumb down -1

    the building is an abstraction of another building designed by diaz romero before.
    Obviously inspired in souto de de moura beetwen others arquitects, but it costs about ten times lower!, maybe you have to appreciate it from the LOW budjet only 140.000euros and 160m2.
    ¿que fue antes la gallina o el huevo?
