From the architect. The project “Between Cathedrals” seeks to create an intervention worthy of the most significant location in the history of Cadiz, the oldest city of the West: the empty space facing the sea located between the Old and New Cathedrals.

The basic premise is to cover and protect an archeological excavation. Additionally, this new plane serves as a base for a space facing the ocean, a raised public space providing clear views unobstructed by cars passing on the circle road.

A light, white platform is thus conceived, poised over the excavation as if on tiptoe, and reached by a side ramp. Over this plane, a huge canopy structure is built to provide protection from the sun and rain.

Constructed as if it were a ship, it is painted completely white to accentuate its lightness. The paved area is carpeted in white marble.

In the construction of the base; the memory of ships. In that of the shade structure, as if it were a baldachin; the memory of a holy week procession.

We would like to make a beautiful piece of architecture, worthy of this wonderful place, and worthy of being part of the collective memory of Cadiz.

the pictures made me want to be there... thanks Alberto Campo Baeza and Javier Callejas... I know we can't judge architecture ONLY using our feelings, but based on mine, I could say this is a wonderful piece of architecture... point for Baeza...

It´s really more like 80's minimalism, hahha! nevermind it´s sad to see conversations are becoming meaningless chats, each day goes arch daily is getting shallower!

Architecture can not be determined by the media it is represented or elaborated in, and it is timeless my friend.
