Chillida's visionary artwork to create a large Space in the Tindaya Mountain represents a big technical challenge. On the one hand, dimensions of the span and flat profile of the cavern roof are unique in underground engineering. On the other hand, the transmission of the artist's idea and the realization of an aesthetic concept combining art, technique and nature in a natural way will require an innovative support solution.
