Stargazing tower in the forest, made by timber structure.
Architecture is divided in three worlds
The first one is the traditional world. It represents the roots and the DNA of the inhabitants, their culture and customs.The second one is the physical world. It is what surround the architecture and was there before it: the forest, the river, the weather, and the boundaries. The third one is the sensitive world, It is the one that affects in the mind of the users. It is represented by the sky: the mystery, the dreams and the imagination.
Architecture has to be a transition between theses three worlds.
The tower is designed to be an ascension from the ground to the sky. It is divided in three steps or cubes that represents the progression between the three worlds.
The first cube is related to the inhabitants. It is the meeting point where the open walls work as a welcome signal for the users. The second cube is linked with the surroundings. It is orientated and in the same level as the trees and it walls are less open to make the users feel that they are inside the forest and be part of the vegetation. The third cube is the stargazing point. The roof is completely open, while the walls are closed, to frame the view in the sky.
