As the territory got parcelled into houses-sheds-plots connected by busy road infrastructures, the relationship between the sanctuary and the context has weakened. A rigorous essential geometry contrasts this geography and generates the project elements. The intervention is therefore a lever for reorganising and reinforcing the found assets.
The agricultural field is redrawn from the surface, a hard monochrome plane partitioned by orthogonal traces on the ground, similar to the straight lines of a Cartesian diagram. The intersections between the straight lines locate vertical elements, conceived as visual signals perceivable from the car space. Towards the street, a forest of tubes punctuates the landscape during daylight and it illuminates it at night. Towards the centre of the surface, they decrease and are alternated with the rows of black poplar trees that shade the garden. The straight lines also define sectors that frame complex objects, acting as degrees of freedom of the plane: seats, play and sport facilities, temporary configurations of stages, stands, tables and other heterogeneous appearances. The edge bordering the countryside terminates with a long wall, sort of a vertical fold of the surface.
The narrative of the “excellence”, made of icons that are often deprived of meaning and commercialised, is flanked by a sensitive journey through the Veneto province. This new narrative records stories and deeds that nourish other images, while looking for new forms of dialogue with the territory, capable of reactivating relations and alternative micro-centralities.
