Stone Gate represents a challenge that balances between mass, weight and gravity, and which appeals for its articulated and complex design. The circle is 3,80 m high and 1,20 m deep, and is designed with a system of 20 modular hewn stones laid dry, combined in a structure that becomes self-supporting thanks to the state of compression given by the steel cables circling it and embedded in it. Every hewn stone weighs 500 kg, the total weight is then 27.300 kg.
