In the gardens of a disused cigar factory, a remarkable insect has come to life. The Cicada, part artwork, part community gathering space, was designed by Tomás Amat Estudio to resemble the body of an insect, with distinct parts representing the head, torso, and tail. Located in Alicante Spain, the Cicada serves as a cafe, bar, restaurant and meeting place for visitors of Centro Cultural Las Cigarreras, a cultural center that now inhabits the old factory buildings.
