In praise of Brick Shithouses

This fridge is over 60 years old and "runs great!" according to the owner of this most excellent vermouth joint in Barcelona. TreeHugger has not run a lifecycle analysis on it but we suspect that with a half-decent motor that this baby would do very well environmentally due to it's extremely long life. There's something reassuring about these older designs that were clearly built to last as long as possible. Imagine if in addition we could apply the many other principles of green design.. *please send us other fave examples of this type of design

Check out that hardware! No planned obsolescence here.

Great place for a 1 Euro Vermouth in Raval.
