Viewing Tower ‘Ultramort’

In a village of the Emporda raises this icon in the landscape, a municipal water tank built in 1962. We were asked to reconvert it and proposed a paronamic wiewing point without loosing the memory and image of the tank. By creating a spiral shape around it base don the experience of the views of its suroundings, we acomplished a game of ausence and presence.

When the night comes,the proposal is illuminated and the mesh dissapears because of its high degree of transparency and the historic tank come to life.
