Lucas (Elkoalapuesto) Rodríguez – Nave de Motores de Pacífico
Nave de Motores de Pacífico. Calle de Valderribas, 49. Madrid
Lucas (Elkoalapuesto) Rodriguez, remains on poetic alert the 24 hours a day, even when on work. All his writing is on everyday life, the urban life is the source of his creation. Lucas is interested in hip hop, a form of poetry which reaches many people and moves away from the traditional figure of the poet. "Poet. It's a title that comes big to everyone. We are, if anything, translators of reality."
The Nave de Motores de Pacífico was built to address the potential shortfalls of electricity supply and provide better service to the Metro network. The Nave also came to provide power to other substations of the subway, the city of Madrid and in 1925, even power companies. Moreover, during the Civil War, it supplied electricity to the population of Madrid. The increasing regularity of power led to the cessation of energy production and, in 1972, the engine room was definitely shut down.
