Text description provided by the architects. Contemporary architecture is THE PLATFORM on which culture and contemporary art rest. Living in an exciting platform can become an art form: THE ART OF LIVING.

We conceived this platform as a LANDSCAPE OF LINEAR EVENTS. The landscape folds itself within the site and forms a growing SPIRAL.

The platform is a LINEAR STRUCTURE made of concrete of constant section in the shape of a "C". The longitudinal blind FAÇADES function as BEAMS and create a 15m. projection.

Concrete is a LIQUID MATERIAL.

The concrete as liquid material solidifies and creates a “liquid” topography on the façade.

1- We create a 3D model of the topographical landscape that we want to construct.

2- Virilian landscape of accidents.

3- Using CadCam with a milling machine with 3 axes, we mold a personalized image, unique and non-standard, of 24m x 3m.

4- We treat the mold and we convert it into formwork of the north and south longitudinal façades.

The platform enters into liquid state, mutant, with a covering of natural plants, an interior landscape of glass (stone) with plotters of digital renders...

A BIO architecture.
