Project type:

Grand Canyon is one of the greatest sceneries of our World. We have been nothing but spectators of this set, always staring from an external and safe position, being afraid of dealing with its overwhelming scale.

The main goal is to make the human being and his architecture actors of this unique space. We do not compete with the Canyon, as the intervention is by all means transparent, but still connecting visitor and environment.

“Inhabiting the edge of the Canyon we are placed in a singular position between ground and void, working as a cantilevering device.”

Conceiving the Canyon as an infinite line, a series of stations are provided, granting the visitor the chance to explore and wander the park, each one in its own way.

“A Line of Lights is produced at night when these devices are occupied, emphasizing the singularity of the Canyon edges in such a way that it keeps its essence while increasing its magic.”

This device consists of a set of 4 Aluminium ribs, supporting a translucent fabric that adapts to the shape of the body and allows numerous configurations. These ribs get attached to a fixed but flexible anchored system repeated over the line of the Canyon.

The light produced comes from sunlight. It is captated and then storaged within the structure of the rib, and finally released at night, accompanying the stars and the visitors into the wilderness of the Grand Canyon.
