LIQE arquitectura as Architects

Emporium’s purpose isto reveal the citizens a hidden reality, events that took place long ago and from which we only have a few clues that have surfaced over time at different sites. This forgotten reality tells us something that although we didn’t know it, itdoesn’t come as a surprise either:Vigo has been a very important place for commercial exchange from ancient times, same as it happens nowadays.

 

With these two facts as a starting point, we decided to employ resources that could evoke both of them into the visitors mind: cratesusually employed for transport and for storage. They contain hidden goods, they contain hidden clues from the past, they contain hidden History.

 

Emporium opens up those crates for the citizens, showing and revealing the unexplored and in fact fresh contents.
