By this way, people get “into” the nature, in a closer contact. Every time that it is possible, the path rises up, leaving the natural paths on the ground untouched, for who prefer to walk on it, and passing under the concrete passage. The attempt was to create a passage with less impact on the environment/landscape. The sequence of spaces is orchestrated by the own nature and successive different views. Path designed for everybody! Constructing on the site : minimize the impact! Read Less
