I hope I am not alone when I remember the awe and the wonder as a child seeing the GESA building lit up in the sun.
When it was first built in the seventies it was so different to its impoverished surroundings of the old fisherman's huts on the edge of Portixol. I used to go past them everyday on the way to school and loved the contrast of buildings just as much as I miss them now since they were demolished for the sake of progress. They were deemed old-fashioned, slums and out-of-touch with modern times. Now quite the opposite would be thought and the same regret would probably be felt if the GESA building were demolished. To me the building is just as much a landmark of Palma as the Cathedral or Castle. You know you are entering Palma when you see its façade. Seventies fashion may be thought of as lacking in taste but for me, and hopefully for others, the GESA building, especially when lit up by the sun, demonstrates the complete opposite.
Long may it stand.
