Past Competition _ SITE MAUSOLEUM _ Jaspe Quarry, ‘Serra Da Arrábida’, Portugal

an international architecture ideas competition (March 11, 2019 - June 29, 2019)

Congratulations to the following WINNER !

1ST PRIZE

SM91612 Giulio Pinci (ITALY)

Jury remarks:

A perfect reduction of the intervention into one single wall. A balcony to the sea, you turn around and see a human made hole. You cross it and discover an open air space for contemplation. There, only a little bit of water, like a dry dam. A great balance between an engineer infrastructure and a land art intervention. Not looking for mimesis, neither stand out.

The strength of this project is that it disappears into the landscape. It provides a new program that is visible from every point but it blends with the surroundings making evident the particularities and contrasts between nature and a man made structure but avoiding an imposing structure in the site.

A single disruption allows the user to be immersed in the past of the place. The passage, removed from the rock, introduces the visitor to a hidden interior, where soul and memory are successfully found. Although It succeeds better in the relation of the user and the inner mountain than with the sea, it solves with a single (and very adequate) gesture most of the emotional demands of the mausoleum.

Congratulations!

2ND PRIZE

SM91620 Emma Bonilla Albornoz, Daniel Eslava Tovar And Santiago Castillo Reina (COLOMBIA)

Jury remarks:

A sequence of extreme experiences. A hole in the mountain, like a deep cave. You see light, and discover the roughness of stone. You continue, and find light again, this time reflected in water. You decided to get wet, to finally contemplate de immensity of the ocean. A great phenomenological trip full of emotion.

The relationship between the architectural project and the natural elements such as water and light are integrated and form a new landscape that one might think it had existed for decades. There is a mysterious quality in this project that is very appropriate for the theme of the completion and evokes a place of solitude and reflection.

An extremely conscious proposal that reveres the core idea of its nature... the infliction of a wound. In a very elegant and conscious way the project understands the language of the quarry and uses the same grammar for a beautiful result. Maybe not as bold is the relation with water, that is more limited to the rock’s water-surface than to a potentially more transcendental relation with the sea horizon. But in the end, a successful new human footprint, so aligned with the past that disappears.

Congratulations!

3RD PRIZE

SM91555 Eiji Otsubo And Takashi Nishizuka (JAPAN)

Jury remarks:

A well calibrated intervention in the landscape that solves all the conditions of the contest with great synthesis and forcefulness is valued. The project is developed as a continuous and suggestive route crossed by multiple atmospheres that demonstrates a skillful handling of the lights, shadows and scales. This intervention transforms the place into an authentic phenomenological experience that concludes with a powerful panoramic view of the landscape.

The continuity of the view of the sea and a new platform with water generates a new dimension that opens the site to the sky and the water as an unexpected horizontal framed landscape. The different paths provided by the project generate varied experiences in the site.

With the site as the main focus, a very elegant promenade that blends with the context and enhances a dynamic experience. Only shadowed by a probably unnecessary excess - because of too artificial - of a utopic water viewing point, it is indeed a very context- conscious proposal where the structure is harmoniously united with landscape.

Congratulations!
