Building in the Landscape

Semester
6

Task

Design of an information centre for the Geopark Bergstrasse-Odenwald as entrance to the 'Sea of Rocks', the product of an especial erosion process. A building with exhibition and schooling possibilities for the subjects of nature, geological and cultural history of the region.

 

Concept

The situation of the building highlights the impact of the water on the formation of the landscape. As the water uncovered the 'Sea of Rocks' through erosion, it also uncovers the new information centre. The subterranean building grants a free view of the 'Sea of Rocks', only visible as a cleft in the slope.
