Bubble Lays Over Barcelona

In the first decade of the year 2000 Spanish economy prospered due to a real estate bubble. All neighbourhoods were dotted by empty solar (yards) as a result of demolitions, whilst new residential compounds rose in a frenzy to cement every portion of the land. Then one day the bubble burst and the work was left scattered and unfinished. To prevent humidity from affecting adjacent buildings, polyurethane foam was spread on the bare walls of the solar. This yellow gelatinous mass becomes a visual metaphor of the implosion of the real estate economy.
