The computer-generated design saw Eisenman superimpose a map of the old city's streets on to the surface of Mount Gaiás, using software to adapt it to the hill's contours. The centre's curved roofs were partly inspired by the scallop shell traditionally carried by pilgrims to the shrine of St James in the city's cathedral.
