The project follows from an in-depth analysis and appreciation of Guadí’s built work: exploring the wonders of his architectural, structural, and philosophical mind and testing these concepts in a modern context.
Rather than proposing one repetitive architectural expression, this project contains a taxonomy of different articulations. These explore the variety and depth of Guadí’s work, while retaining recurring themes, to produce a singular, cohesive architectural composition.
The Masterplan starts with a simple concept: a vision of an inhabited landscape. Exploration is encouraged as you meander through paths and discover the different volumes amongst local species of plants.
To respect the scale and local context, program elements are broken down to their most basic components, creating a series of delicate and sensitive insertions that rest on the landscape.
The resulting proposal creates a new landmark, integrated into the landscape, informed by historical context and directed by the needs of its visitors.
