PPV80926- Moussa Belkacem (France)
This project is a very poetic and symbolic answer to the brief. We are very sensible to the minimal use of material to create a real effect based on the perception of the surrounding and fading of chaos. It also shows a good understanding of the Parisian practice of Champ de Mars for picnic and reunion. From the bottom of the hole to the top of the side hill the perception of the visitor will manage to create the feeling of an invisible boundary. This approach is a meaningful and right intervention to create a pavilion mixing the visible and the invisible evolving from the dark time of pain to the bright time of peace and hope
I found this proposal was ingeniously simple, making a gentle, peaceful mark on the site. Although the design is focused on ‘landscape intervention’ rather than ‘architecture intervention’ it feels appropriate. The detail will be important, I don’t understand how the chalk will be supplied, presented and controlled, however the proposal does in my view really follow the brief and focuses on an unconvoluted interpretation of it.
