Think Space Competition (Croatia-Zagreb), Honour Mention. Jury: Charles Renfro and Ricardo Scofidio, Role: Author, PREHISTORIC PERISCOPE The main idea is to open the point of view of the visitor to the landscape. A new higher point of view like the “god eye” described by Micheal de Certeau. The visitor will experience to live many meters above the lake. His new scale will give him a new perspective of his HABITAT, linking his mind to the universe. This is possible thanks to gigantic periscopes. The main building remind then some dinosaurs or prehistoric animal. It refers to a prehistoric condition of the place where he lives, with an amazing surrealist final effect.
