A folding; continuous, like the work of Mies
Starting from an environment in which we proposed not to interfere with the traditional view of the Pavilion from the square and rediscover the N.W. facade (partially hidden by the forest and the mountains), we implemented the project backed against a cut that was excavated in the mountain so as not to hinder the existing visuals to date, creating new spaces from which to visualize all the places surrounding the proposal: the mountain, the palaces, the pavilion and the village.
From the observation of an interior photo of the pavilion that, both from the right and inverted, gave the same spatial quality, the idea arose (supported on a 7.5 x 7.5 m module), to form a continuous envelope, where the “inside” becomes “outside” (almost like a Moebius curve). Envelope to which, with its free cuts, a counterform is imbricated that then creates the different areas that contain a whole, where theory and rationalism intermingle.
