Escalier to Dawn
Nikolai Park, Russia - second phase
The concept behind The ‘Rite of Spring’, is inspired to the wonderful orchestra and performative artwork of "Pictures of Pagan Russia in Two Parts" of Stravinsky; the scenario of the Art Installation depicts rituals celebrating the advent of spring happening around the ‘viewing tower’ or ‘staircase to dawn’. DAWN: The noun dawn refers to the first light of day, or the first time period, like the dawn of a new era. Escalier - Staircase, represents the rite of passage to a new space, in this case a temporal act. It is the architectural transposition of the mountain, looking above new territories as observation towers. Mistic Circles inspired to the pagan dance are the guidelines of the design which develop concetrically to create a landscape of performative work. The structure - in pallet - resamble a dancing skirt which moves in circles creating a dynamic dance. It is facing east - with west at its background. Team: Cristina Morbi
