PALAFITTE'S UNESCO SITE
CASTELLARO LAGUSELLO, Italy
The overall project involves the construction of light structures designed to signal and identify the most valuable landscape and archaeological sites of the Unesco site of Castellaro Lagusello in the province of Mantova.
This small architecture, in particular, assumes the geometry of the structural elements of the morainic landscape in the context inserted in an oak forest; the piles / trees evoke the architectural structures of the palafittes site and, with the rest area, mark this information point on the route that discovered the territories once characterized by prehistoric settlements.
Architectural structures are designed to be integrate into the landscape through an accurate colour insertion of the materials that are used; the corten steel and the blackened wood mix with the colours of the undergrowth emerging with balance from the ground.
