Milan / December 2020


The concept comes from the idea of Foro Studio to create a physical and virtual reference point. The Zavial Battery enclosed in a circle - a symbol of protection, respect and enhancement of the site - is clearly visible on web maps. A concrete monolith acts as a landmark and draws attention: it marks the entrance and gives information about the site.


A circular pathway begins the "time travel" and makes one think of being suspended above the ocean, while the lower part of the pathway is filled with natural elements and offers a privileged view towards the ocean and the cliff. At the end of the trail, the sloping floor and monolith push toward the ancient ruins.


The same immersive atmosphere returns for the project proposed by FORO Studio on the occasion of the competition for the intervention in the Salar de Uyuni.
