With essays by Maxwell L. Anderson, Lawrence Chua, Rachel Healy, Ismail Serageldin, Ramón Villares and phographs by Candida Höfer
Back in 1999 the Xunta de Galicia called an International Architecture Competition to build the City of Culture of Galicia on Mount Gaiás in Santiago de Compostela. Twelve proposals by renowned national and international architects' studios were initially submitted to this competition for ideas. Out of all these ideas, the final project to be selected for development was the design by Eisenman Architects, as - to quote the Jury - it was, "unique both in concept and plasticity, and exceptionally in tune with the site's location". After ten years of intensive debate within Galician society and a meticulous building process, the City of Culture of Galicia is now becoming a reality. Located in a UNESCO World Heritage Site and conceived as a large-scale hub devoted to hosting the best of cultural expressions of Galicia, Spain, Europe, Latin America, and the world, the City of Culture of Galicia will contribute with its inclusive and pluralistic approach to meet the challenges of the information and knowledge society. This book invites readers to stroll around a new city where past, present, and future cultures coexist: “A new cultural Babylon will open its doors to readers.”
