Matteo Ghidoni – Enrico Dusi
Plaza del Mercado
With the collaboration of the Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Madrid
A DOME is placed in the main square – Plaza del Mercado – in front of the Cathedral of Santa Maria de La Redonda.
A DOME aims to establish a relationship with the architecture of the church: its volume is moulded on the central niche of the facade. Its proportions are found rather than invented.
A DOME is monumental, through little means. It is temporarily monumental.
A DOME activates a 40 m2 portion of public space, providing a bit of shadow and a feeling of wonder.
A DOME is open to host civic rituals.
