Santa & Cole FAD

Originally designed for the headquarters of Barcelonas FAD (Fostering Arts and Design Association). The FAD was founded in 1903 by a group of artisans and architects deeply concerned about the consequences of industrialisation. For decades, the association was a pioneer advocate for Spanish architecture and projective arts.
