Plaza España  by Herzog & de Meuron, in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Spain, 2008

A urban water basin with a geyser like fountain in the middle, where citizens can relax and stay togheter.This public square evokes physical phenomena like the erosion and eruptions that have been essential in shaping forms of the Canary Islands. Around the basin, many architectural landscape elements represent the Islands’ diverse ecosystems and topography. Moreover its graphic motif reproduces the foundations and surviving walls of the old Castillo.
