[edit] Information

On a small hill overlooking Santiago de Compostela, the site of a famous medieval pilgimage destination, a complex of buildings is taking shape using the lastest 21st technology. Due to open in 2012, The City of Culture will have taken ten years to build, at a cost of half a billion dollars. Renowned architect Peter EIsenman designed each buidling to blend the area's medieval roots with the futurist constructions taking shape. He did this by mapping the five main pilgrimage roads that lead to the old cathedral, moved this series of grid lines to the top of the mountain and merged their layout with the topography of the hilltop. By employing the same local stone and masonry techniques used in medieval times, Eisenman has embedded the genetic code of the old city within his modern design.
