Peter Eisenman and Martín Azúa have re-created nature in Compostela Arturo Álvarez, with a personal and total involvement, has made some sculptural lamps that remind us beautiful flowers which rise slender and impressive towards the sky … The framework is a set of stunning buildings designed by Peter Eisenman called “A Cidade da Cultura” in the city of Santiago de Compostela. Martín Azúa, one of the most prestigious Spanish designers nowadays, was entrusted with designing two integrated spaces ON|OFF where the visitors can relax. Eisenman designed a few buildings, which are an extension of the Galician hills, soft and curvy placing the route of the medieval town of Santiago and the striated ripples of the pilgrim scallop on top; following this language Azúa immersed himself in the magic and mystery of this region, combining tradition and innovation with references to Galician nature but with care and consideration, soaking in the small and subtle… ON area is to restore power and reconnect, the furniture was made by Martinez Otero and the chairs by Konstantin Grcic. OFF space is about relaxing and documentation, the seats were made by a group of Galician basket craftsmen managed by Idoia Cuesta. For this area we have made some sculptural luminaires that open themselves and show all its splendor by sifting a soft and charming light that welcomes guests to stay, to take a rest … The result is there, for your judgment. By the way, I take the chance to invite you to visit this land of “witches” and pilgrims that remain bewitched by the mysteries and beauties that this land hides and some of them try to transmit and reinvent for future generations.
