When walking on the preexisting forms of nature we enter into resonance with the patterns. The energy follows the form and the form determines the function. Thus, we enter into synergy with the development model that nature created for that place. It is what happens in the museion
Incredible as it may seem, the people who arrive get enchanted by the experience: they sit and spend a long time contemplating the place. Little by little, the conditions required to have contact with art are created: humility, openness, relaxation. These conditions are fundamental because art is a bridge to the sacred. Just like the activity of a shaman, rites are revealed in the art that allows us to access the source, the origin, the sacred. And that is precisely what nature is.
Under this premise, there is a permanent living fire in the museum. The design of the floor follows the shape of nature, it is all undulating, it runs barefoot and the textures change representing the four elements: air, fire, earth, and water. One goes through these spaces to get in touch with different elements. Like all the constructions we make, the museion was made without plans
We do not have a previous idea when building so that it happens spontaneously in place. In the case of the museion, it involved the participation of four hundred people. In the absence of a previous plan, at the moment the form is created. A posteriori, once the main structure is created, the project is complemented with place renders to see details of finishes. The place is built without plans.
SFER IK was growing spontaneously with decisions that were made every day, according to the principles of our architecture that are based on not solving problems but feeding and nurturing them to grow. Being major challenges, they demand unique solutions and that way the architecture is open to discovering the new. In relation to the materials, we also had to design a technique of cement use. We do not make columns, everything is worked following the logic of the form, as a basket is built
We currently have twenty-five meter high structures that have no columns or beams. We have designed construction systems that allow us to carry out the work in unconventional ways, for example: without entering machines or trucks into the construction space. As a consequence, this requires intensive labor but allows us not to cut trees. In the thirty acres of the project, a
