La vida es movimiento

Madrid, Spain

We are moving therefor we are alive. What is still, dries up and die. That is the reason why the human being has always look for go further and further, by building roads and railways, by sailing the oceans and flying above the clouds.
But not the only physical movement what keeps us alive.

Social unrest keeps the ideals awaken and up in arms. That is another way of feeling alive. The San Cristobal colony lives with the movement -in the broadest sense- running through its veins.

With this intervention we want to pay tribute to a community that has fought for their principles. The movement has maintained the San Cristobal Colony awaken, preserving its identity and neighborhood character despite the circle of fire that the corporate development has created around these 25 blocks.
