A young architect was taking a walk through the Barcelona countryside when he stumbled across a sight that blew him away. Right there in front of him was an abandoned factory that had been unused for years. It was run-down and anyone else would have dismissed the building but not this young architect. He saw a great potential in the building and the way he restored it will take your breath away.
