Christmas lights in Chueca Plaza 
25th-Dec-2008 10:59 am

Ribbons of lights form a rainbow over Plaza de Chueca, the heart of Madrid's gay district. The municipality commissions designers to decorate its main shopping and nightlife areas in ways that fits each space. Architects Sergio Sebastián y Patricia de Miguel created these lights.

Other streets and plazas have blinking eyes, pinwheels, leaves, and Christmas trees. See a pretty minute-and-a-half video here (in Spanish, but you can guess what it's saying anyway):

¡Felices Fiestas!

I have seen something about this designer, Sergio Sebastián. He´s a very young architect and designer, and has made something in interior and exhibition design, landscape and interventions in public space, like the previous lights in this square, confetti. All these projects have something in common, colour and happyness.
I think that Christmas in Madrid are wonderful, aren´t they?

Some photos of 20008 Xmas Lights in Madrid.
Chueca Square, a project of the architects Sergio Sebastián and Patricia de Miguel, not only fashion designers can dress the city. Fantastic!
