The " Puerta del sol " square carries the weight of history and the added responsibility of being one of the most important public spaces in the city.
Despite this significance, an urban noisy ambience results from his absence of urban vocation.
The proposed seat intends to establish a close relation with his environment, and reflects the rule and rationality of the near buildings.
The result of the rational combination expressed by its environment and the movement in the square its an abstract, immortalized, living organism, who seems to walk in the square taking as a conceptual starting point the "zero km".
