“All the ways in which human beings overcome their original barbarism, and through artifice, become fully human”. Definition of culture by Samuel Pufendorf. As the above definition of culture our intervention is focused in two different states of the building. The first, their “primitive” state, reflected by the agglomeration of all vital functions for the operation of a building (infrastructure core).

In Venice, right to the entrance of the Giardini is the Spanish pavilion of the Biennial. Without prejudice to more thorough interventions later, the pavilion façade –and the pavilion as a whole for that matter- urgently needed to present an image befitting a country emerging strongly in the heart of Europe.

During the January of 2007, the construction works of a secondary pipe of the water distribution mains in Segarra-Garrigues system, caused an unexpected appearance of archaeological ruins from an ancient construction for 4.800 years in Seró (Artesa de Segre, Lleida). The most important point of this discovery was the megalithic nature of sandstone slabs and specially the accuracy of geometrical decoration sculpted. Stones with soft relief that, at the same time, were parts of ancient statues reused from a previous sculptural monument.
