The project aims to generate a public debate about the Christmas values taking advantage of the context: La Pedrera facade is probably the most important global screen in Barcelona and Passeig de Gràcia is the paradigm of consumerism in the city. This proposal is a matrix of light messages occupying all the main facade. Essentially, we wish to establish a relationship between the observer and the building where the observer interprets the combination of messages, including the word BUY. The words are on a vertical plane 3 meters from the façade, generating dramatic lighting effects due to the complex morphology of La Pedrera.
