Plaza de San Bartolomé
Sebastián Andrés Podesta and Lucas Seré Peltzer
In Plaza de San Bartolomé, a simple intervention brings together the existing space and calls for contemplation, reflection.
Removing the benches from the square, we offer two resting points at either end, two concrete blocks connected by a mirror of water, to synthesize the act of feeling and growing closer to its essence. A set of element that proposes we exist, observe, connect with the visible and with each other.
The situation suggests but does not direct – each approach will take you to different places; to the dissolution of boundaries; to canals, the past and the origin; to the preservation of historic urban heritage; to human connections. By getting our feet wet we integrate with one another, we are equal: all footprints dry on the stone floor.
