Promenade: .Through the Present Future free pdf This is the past, present, and future of macro-architecture and how it constructs our landscape and ways of living and interacts with new urban spaces. Back in 1999 the Xunta de Galicia called an International Architecture Competition to build the City of Culture of Galicia on Mount Gaias 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.
