Emerging from a snowy desert, like a lighthouse of foam, the building realized by B E A R T H & D E P L A Z E S, is approached like a lunar satellite.
These images are the visual search for a space of just dialogue between rational forms and the organic element; between architecture and the surrounding landscape. Architecture intrinsically carries the idea of transformation and transforms a place from a condition of nature to a condition of culture. The greater the tension between the two elements, richer the mountain and more interesting the architectural object becomes.
The reflection, a literal and metaphorical opening, defines the gaze, frames the landscape. Due to the concave structure of the glass, its transparency and its reflection, a superimposed effect is created, like a freeze frame during a cinematic cross-fade. The depth of field subtly tilts the reflection of the landscape into the building, itself becoming the surrounding mountain. Paradoxically but intrinsically, nature is then part of the architectural project.
