Camposaz 5:5 Siror - Viewpoint between the trees
Camposaz 5:5 is a workshop that takes place in Siror, in an area of great landscape value at the feet of the Dolomites. The aim of the workshop is to design and self-build wooden architectural objects for landscape enhancement. During the Camposaz workshop the participants are required to ideate and assemble wood constructions, following the thematic suggestions provided by the organizers and developing eco-friendly, practical and sustainable design projects.
The main task of this edition of Camposaz is to recover a small portion of a sloping land, placed over the village of Siror, in order to recuperate the traditional terraced gardens, which are now abandoned. In this mountain area, the old pastures and the cultivated lands have been progressively abandoned and invaded by shrubs, scrub and bushes. The different working phases include the clearing of the area, with the extirpation of invasive plants, and the reconstruction of the old terraced gardens, in order to improve the accessibility of the area. The self-built project consists of two wood installations: the first one is a covered platform visible form the valley, the second one, more intimate, is a overhanging landscape observatory built between the existing trees.
