"As soon as people stop inhabiting a space or having an affective relationship with it, it diminishes"

Thank you for this dream!

Gracias por este sueñoIt would not be difficult to provide a theorem to assert that the vast majority of important inventions in the history of mankind would end up, sooner or later, transformed into weapons with a thousand twisted, ingenious and unpleasant devices: fire, metals, radioactivity and drugs. What is not so common is that the person behind the discovery would end up realising this fact. And what almost never happens is that he makes a more or less questionable attempt, even in philosophic terms, at redemption. And that this is taken very, very seriously. This was the case of the creator of dynamite, that invention that revolutionised the mining industry(1), by Swedish chemist Alfred Nobel, who rapidly realised that the military uses of his invention would surpass civilian use in no time at all. The weight of dynamite, indeed, continues to be the measurement unit of all explosive power today, including nuclear.

See what the new BB Construmat is cooking up at El Celler de Can Roca

Celler Can RocaOver one hundred companies met up between 28 and 30 June at the Mas Marroch Space of El Celler de Can Roca at a meeting organised by BB Construmat where the Roca brothers explained the principles behind their cutting-edge gourmet enterprise, which has managed to successfully overcome the crisis, as an inspirational formula. The relaxed and informal meeting served to give an initial idea of what the show will be like this year: a meeting place, somewhere to share knowledge and collaborate with the construction sector of today; an essential rendezvous for taking stock of the sector and celebrating its recovery.
