Pyrénées Slope

As a result of the program of the contest building, the façade becomes an element only in relation to its surroundings, another northern slope of a Pyrenees valley. The proposal generates a geometric mimesis while showing its artificiality through its materiality. Offering the space of this facade to the nature of the place the façade is never understood as a finished product, it is an organic dynamic and living façade, which responds to seasons and varying conditions.

The building system follows the idea of this natural process and has the dynamism of the project in itself. The placement of the brackets ensures the control of an approximate general geometry but from there on, workers will place the panels freely, varying in curvature and density of the final appearance.
