Scope and Content

The project series documents the competition, design, and construction of the Plaza and Tower Woermann, on the Canary Islands. The competition was organised by the City Council of Las Palmas. Abalos & Herreros and Renata Sentkiewicz in collaboration with Joaquín Casariego and Elsa Guerra won first place for their entry. They also worked with Ferrovial Inmobiliaria, Irene Zúñiga, David Sobrino and Obiol y Moya. The firm identified the project as number 142.

The building includes offices, residential and retail units, and a public library. The square was designed with collaborating artist Albert Oehlen using Portuguese stone. Both the tower and the plaza were designed with the idea of integrating them in a hybrid-natural and artificial-landscape.

In 2005, the firm was a finalist at the Premios FAD de Arquitectura e Interiorismo for this project.

Documenting the project are contains design development and working drawings, graphic and photographic materials, correspondence, notes and a model.
