Graphics and architectural graphics

For the first time in 2004, the Christmas lights that decorated Madrid were unlike any in the past. The City Council invited a variety of artists and designers to offer their proposals for certain sections of the city.

2004 was the year of the terrorist attacks at Atocha train station.
