Aperture au Publique

"Opening to the Public" is the first stage of an architectural Master Plan with the view to restore, renew and develop the infrastructures of Can Mossenya estate in the light of its seven centuries of historic, artistic and spiritual heritage since its foundation in 1300 as part of The Royal Chartreuse of Jesus of Nazareth.

The following drawings and images outline the idea:

The plan shows:

This first step, "Opening to the Public", would had already been completed by the end of the year 2003, were not for the obstacles fabricated by the local administration of this small village, despite a majority vote in the town hall promising to support the Friends of Borges organization much earlier. [As we found out later, the major is the only one in all Spain to remain in power since the tyranny of Franco, an incredible anachronism for real Democracy, and has been denounced several times over the years by Non Government Organizations concern by his destruction of the National Heritage.] He represents a group that wants for greedy economic gain the land where our centenary warehouse for the Arts is built, without caring at all for their systematic destruction of the cultural and historic landmarks that single out this one island among thousand of others in the Mediterranean sea. They make of actuality the bitter remark made by George Sand in her "Winter in Majorca" (with Chopin): this island would be a form of Paradise were it not for greedy thieves and ignorant inhabitants.
