Competition for young architects
By looking at the topography and the shape of the hill, we perceived the silhouette of a four-sided roof or pyramid. This observation made us to draw some consequences referring to one of the most significant shapes: a square. Inspired by origami rules of folding paper, the new structure has the ability to perfectly fit to the site.
A new interpretation of a medieval castle’s typical components led us to use them as highlights for visitors. The fortress transforms itself into its own real scale model, following a precise geometrical mark, based on existing elements.
