Dali Designs Madrid Square

September 15, 1985| From Reuters

MADRID — Surrealist Salvador Dali has designed a city square with a dolmen-like structure and a sculpted figure from his paintings to be built in Madrid's elegant Salamanca quarter, city officials said.

The ailing 81-year-old painter dictated his ideas to an engineer who visited him at his Catalan retreat of Figueras and stamped his signature on the sketches, they said.

"Dali gave very precise instructions on the design and specified the materials to be used," a spokesman said.

The sketches will not be unveiled until city architects draw the final plans, he added.
