This facility proposal for SPACE-FLAMENCO was presented to the College of Quantity Surveyors and Architectural Technicians of Barcelona on 26 November 2003, during the  Fourth Symposium on the Future of the space Públic-SIFFACUS. It was made by O. Rius – who had the first idea – and architects A. Poch and X. Nieto and it’s placed in a park of Sant Adrià del Besos.

The emphasis on structural form and the lines of an egg that characterize this work were born following an initial approximation consisting of a space defined by a flattened circular dome.

Almost all of a sudden, just when starting this job, a question came: why not form and therefore the entire structure of inherent lines of force and resistance in this small body – the egg, both organic and inorganic – and virtual presence, prodigiously strong and static as regards its external structure, dynamic and wonderfully generatrix with respect to its internal microcosm?

However, I would never had spontaneously blessed the idea of the egg, if that Piero della Francesca‘s image of an egg hanging in a huge shell over the head of the Madonna with the child did not come to my mind. That egg is a symbol of divinity and creation that I translated as the creative force and the divinity that we all have inside, if there is an "inside”. The divinity that can only be found by the music, beyond the tonal and atonal dogmas, beyond fashions and beliefs.
