scientists tell us that all water
is old water,
that there is no room for originality,
that everything is recycled.
the anguish of Achilles bleeding out
face-down in the Trojan dirt
mingles with that of a stockbroker caught
in the ebb and flow of the markets,
and what I am trying to say is that the tears
navigating south through the canyons on your face
may have once wet the cheeks
of Alexander the Great
for the same reason.

"A former restored slaughterhouse in Madrid offers space for a variety of cultural and creative activities, such as exhibitions that utilize defunct carcass-hanging hooks to display delicate pieces of art.
Given a limiting budget, we reduced our architectural decisions into two unique actions. The first one uses a particular industrial element: doors. By manipulating their position, the functional possibilities of the design were multiplied. For example, the main space could be transformed into smaller spaces to celebrate different activities simultaneously. The second move was to recover the brickwork to establish a distinct atmosphere within the building. The execution of these two simple ideas reinforced the scale and proportions of the interior, while at the same time, it revamped the character of the building.”
