I believe that many people are astonished and wonder about the balance when looking at Timmelsjoch Experience Pass Museum project. Could you tell us how this project was born?
When we intervened, the border between Austria and Italy didn’t exist anymore and we wanted to make this element visible with the architecture.
The establishment of the building is in Austria while the protrusion is in Italy. We freely built between the two countries to better highlight the disappearance of the borders. For what it concerns the architectural aspects, the establishment is a block heavier than the rest that has two side walls that work as lintels. Two big beams connected together by the roof and the floor, not too difficult to make. Everything is in reinforced concrete and fiberboards so that it gives lightness to the concrete.
This objects literally “floats” on the border.
