Rocks to overlook the valley. Our project takes the shape of two rocks emerging from the mountains. The volumes want to perceived as an expression of the culture heritage of the Bamiyan people. The open space that connects the architectural rocks will provide a public plaza to gather and exchange and to promote interaction with the different ethnic groups in Afghanistan.
The proportion of our building plays a fundamental role and balance with the magnitude of the city and the valley. It connects the south and east of the existing buildings which include the Afghan police station and the north and west side of the valley, The “beacon-iconic” volume safeguards the city, emphasises the beauty of the landscape and the different views of the valley.
Every subtraction or rotation of the volume highlights the surrounding and reshapes the environment. We can contemplate the spectacular valley from the different levels and access, from the plaza and the park. Every folding of the building becomes landscape as well.
