“If Lou Reed had been an architect, what would he have planned ?”

A former abandoned brick factory takes over life wearing a layer of black paint and becomes a new space for Music and Art, down on the corner.
The project consists of suggestions following the verses of a piece recited by Lou Reed for the Kashmir: “Black Building”.
Apparently it is an empty place in which there are “no lights no signs of anything” but adorned with cracked facades; it invites you to discover what happens inside.
