The magic of Dolomites in the new look-outs by Messner Architects

Dolomites, Paradise on earth.

In order to enhance the value and popularity of the Dolomites, the Fondazione Dolomiti-Dolomiten-Dolomites-Dolomitis commissioned the Messner Architects studio to create architectonic, landscaping and graphic standards for new look-outs in the World Heritages Site Dolomiti UNESCO. 

Considering the highly sensible surroundings of this alpine region, the architects aimed to create a structure strongly integrated with the landscape, that has been transformed: by cutting the soil and raising it, a platform is gained, which partly floats above the ground; the outer perimeter is made of steel, filled with rubble from the site, and the constraints between building and context blur.

In addition, a small canyon leads to a circular opening in the center of the platform, where information about the landscape and the geology is stored; finally, a circular index made of stainless steel shows the visible summits, creating an unforgettable point of view.
