Nah, they are commieblocks no matter what you call them
And they have nothing to do with communist or facism
It's just mass storage for human beings, like Whoose Homepage noted

Oh sorry!
I though you called them Commie blocks because they are in old commie countries, so here they are, the Spanish Commie Blocks!!!

In fact, they are a version of the french one, because the construction system used in the beginning was from France.

Because only socialist countries use them as the main storage method. You see those things even in villages in countries like Russia, while in US they are rare.

hm, well this may be true about the US, but in other countries (including western europe and many asian countries) these "commie" blocks were used as often as in the communist countries.


anyway, great update. but torre agbar is imo horrible.

Great update!

I'm curious how the facade of Torre Agbar is going to look in reality. It's a weird building. Hotel Diagonal is also... interesting.

Damn Agbar sure is a pure masterpiece. It's going to be better than Swiss RE I think.
