Text description provided by the architects. The plan lies on a very particular geological site, known for its fossils abundance. For its scientific and educational environment, Pedreira do Campo is considered a natural monument. Therefore, the project look up for maintain it identify, and, for that motive, we considered two different walkways, one of which planned by us for contemplation purposes of the site, while the other is integrated on an existing one, maintaining its memory and identify. The first path slightly touches the rocky ground, as a form to avoid is presence at is minimum, whose wooden structure reveals intention to merge on the site.

The slightness and organic walkway creates a nodal point, improving the geographical site itself whose structure ends on a fantastic viewpoint to the sea.

The walkway wooden handrail is not just safer for the guests but punctually exhibits information panels about the site. Using structural solid wood on the walkway exploits a better integration, and actually, comes as a result from a detailed urban planning to take advantage of its landscapes and its geological site.
