With this 1200 square meters intervention, we wanted to represent some of the most iconic elements of San Millán that have been lost over the years by using only color and abstract shapes.
The starry night takes us to the witches who were always believed to inhabit San Millán (known as the “Witches neighborhood). The blue rings represent the Clamores river, buried under the same square years ago. The red shades speaks about the yarn and brick industry, which was the main engine of the San Millan economy back in the days. The green rings represent the orchards that, in the origins of the neighborhood, occupied the greater part of its surface.
It has been a enriching process talking to neighbors who have lived in the neighborhood for more than 40 years. Knowing their history first hand and translating it into colors and shapes.
