At the farthest western edge of Spain, where it meets the sea and looks to the setting sun over the Atlantic this desolate landscape is formed by the constant wind and waves. It is a harsh land, this tip of Galicia, where the most valued natural resource is the sea. And on this westernmost point, Finisterre, also known as the coast of death because of a long history of shipwrecks, perches one of the most moving pieces of modern architecture, a cemetery for sailors and fishermen, by architect Cesar Portela. Through May 1, 2006, at the Museum of Modern Art in New York there is a new exhibit of modern Spanish architecture. For more information, visit And visit

Thank you for this, and every one of your podcasts! They are the most informative and interesting design casts out there. I have visited this work by Cesar Portella...amazing. One thing that struck me was that each pod is situated so that when standing inside (small standing platform for visitation), the view is framed to the ocean only; one cannot see any other pod around.

Thank you for the compliment, Stacey. Your point about the positioning of the \"pods\" is astute, and an important part of Portela\'s design. You are fortunate to have visited this cemetery. It is a powerful and remarkable place. Thanks for listening. Any suggestions you have for future podcasts, please pass them my way.
