Synopsis

Casa Bloc, an international reference of rationalist architecture, was the first social housing built in Spain in the 1930s. But Casa Bloc’s project was interrupted by the Civil War and ended up as a residence for widows and orphans of the Guardia Civil, which remained active until 2015.
Currently, a foundation that manages social housing is undertaking a rehabilitation of part of the building to recover the original spirit and turn it into a shelter for people at risk of social exclusion.
