“Cruz-Diez spent month thinking about how he could bring the Guri Dam’s vast space to life without hampering the engineers, technicians, and labourers already at work on the project. He wanted to provide a show of gradually changing colours in a place that offered nothing but vibration and earsplitting noise. “The dimensions were the dominant concern. I thought, drew, and made scale models until I came up with the idea of injecting more light into the walls and creating a structure high in the hall to indicate where the turbines were in order to make the immensity of the space seem less overwhelming” Cruz-Diez recollects.”
