“ALTER EGO” | Christian Magaldi Architecture Studio
It’s Cruz de Mayo guey!
No building activity today…
Magaldi’s recent migration to one of Miami Downtown’s most beloved buildings (The Huntington Building) had to be celebrated in fresh style. What better way to inject vibrant energy into the space than with a color filled tapebomb installation?
We chose today (May 3rd) for its symbolic meaning in Mexican culture: the Cruz de Mayo holiday. The Fiesta de las Cruces is celebrated in Mexico mainly by guilds and unions involved in construction. A cross is adorned with flowers and paper is placed in a high position on a building in the process of construction. The workers then celebrate with local cuisine and alcoholic beverages such as tequila, mezcal and local beer.
No cross with paper was adorned here, just a promising space with colored tapes.
