Building

A Swiss-designed modernist icon, reimagined by visionary Brazilian architect Marcio Kogan.

Designed in the 1960s by Swiss architect Marc-Joseph Saugey, a contemporary of Le Corbusier, Francesc Macià 10 is one of the few Bauhaus-style buildings to be found in Barcelona. The distinctive façade of this former office block is now a listed feature of the city and a landmark in its own right. Revitalised by award-winning neo-modernist architect Marcio Kogan, Francesc Macià 10 marks a new era for this architectural masterpiece.
