PART 1: One of the most pressing requests of Villaverde was the Metro (tube or underground). The residents were asking it for years but the politicians always said that it was a utopia. I reckoned this answer was something remarkable to work with. I decided to paint a square with 483 possible ways to make a metro (metre). Here the result.

PART 2: A massive yellow fence over a slope in Villaverde. This area is located in the south of Madrid, since it was part of Madrid its population has had to handle so many kind of "fences" everyday, most of them higher, stronger and less fancy than this one.

PART 3: La Nora was a ceramic factory, the first one located in Villaverde at the end of XIX century, even today it’s possible to see a huge chimney made of bricks. This area was built using face brick, being something recurring along the district. My way to pay tribute to this aesthetic was make a diptych of two broken bricks joined together with a white cable tie in the only building made of concrete.
