The Platform
This project has its origin in a conversation with Peter Cook around 1997 about landscapes and sea carriers. It explores a suburban public building, placed like a large piece of a "stolen", lifted up territory. It is a simple composition: a body, a plain surface and a building on it. A series of activities (recreative and commercial) are kept down the surface in the main volume. The top of the building contains exhibition rooms. The form is a bit "blind" (a few, long gaps become windows) showing some heroic character: it is not difficult to imagine yourself walking on the platform, trying to guess what happened with the world underneath. This building seems to be waiting for something. This project continues the series titled "Ground Projects".   DE   EN   ES   FR
