Blocks of flats in the working-class neighbourhood of Orcasur.
A complex of blocks of flats built during the 1970s and 1980s. The six identical red brick blocks have small windows on their north side; austere and predominately straight railings on the south façade; and windowless walls on the east and west. The buildings form arcades, passageways, ramps and staircases.
The rhythmic structure of the buildings, separated from one another by pedestrian areas – paved in certain cases, unpaved in others – offers an interesting image of working-class Madrid.
At the junction between Avenida Orcasur and Avenida de los Poblados, which is a wide avenue with two lanes on each side, we find an equally interesting overhead pedestrian crossing.
