The SGAE (General society of Authors and Publishers) Central Office in Santiago de Compostela , is located in Vista Alegre property, a privileged site with intermediate scale between a private garden and a public green area, from where the skyline of the historical city can be glimpsed. The project for the development of the plot was designed by the Japanese architect Arata Isozaki, and contemplated the construction of a series of buildings with academic purpose, most of them unbuilt. The SGAE Central Office situated in the west limit of the site completes the intervention in Vista Alegre and defines its boundaries. The architectural conception of the building incorporates the spirit of the city of Santiago developing a singular identity and entering a dialogue with the history and memory of the place, as well as a close relationship with contemporary artistic language.

magic with materials. from cd cases as the wall in the portico, to tree trunks on floor -1, to the index of the tree trunks in the basement, and obviously the monolithic stones strewn on the east portico
