‘for years I have been longing for an opportunity to work with aluminium extrusions – an industrial technology which combines superior structural properties with an elegantly sleek aesthetic. I wanted to carry out a project for bd barcelona since the early 80’s as I liked the work by oscar tusquets and lluis clotet.‘ – konstantin grcic
