Park Poetry

About The Project

The second year of University started in a more abstracted way.  After reading a poetry we had to develop a structure for a park. A place that represented physically all the abstraction of most poems.  The poem read was about life and mainly the four elements of the nature: fire, water, earth and air.

The architecture presented was for a location of part of the park where people had to change levels. Trying to bring to the project the earth feeling of the poem, half of the structure was designed to be underground. This circular quote transposition would represent all four elements in its way. Part of the building have been designed to represent the wind and its sensations.
