Maribor - first prize
The area in the district of Pobrežje [Maribor] is occupied by the municipal landfill, presently in a phase of renaturalization and ecological rehabilitation, a process that will take an unknown amount of time. We took this temporary circumstance as a leit motif of the project, understanding that the temporary processes are highly related to the architecture. A new landscape is built artificially, above the existing flat land, a temporary landscape, that creates a new level where it is possible to construct light structures. This new topography forms spaces or rings of distinct sizes where the perimeter is integrated with different buildings in continuity with the new landscape, diluting the limits between the natural and the artificial.
