“Simplicity of shape does not necessarily equate with simplicity of experience.” – Robert Morris

Nature is the object of this work.

Architecture is reduced to the essence of lines and traces in the landscape. Lines that form a square fence that orders the space. Tracks that mark a path that explores space.

As in some works by Rchard Long, the act of anticipating becomes, also in this project proposal, of great importance. The experience of walking serves to measure the place to multiply its spaces, it becomes an educational and poetic experience at the same time.

The simplicity of experience does not correspond to the formal simplicity of the proposed architecture. Architecture through form describes the experience of the landscape and its materiality. The project proposal is reduced to a few concepts and signs, almost abstract that eschew monumentality and rather pursue a certain form of transience, such as the constant plowed fields, returned to the work through the experience of the roof gardens, in which the building disappears in nature, as in the patio where a piece of nature appears inside the enclosure.
