Jury feedback summary
‘Opus Loci’ maps local resources within a 100km radius to serve the design and construction of this project. Programs are organized to prioritize interactions between artist production and living spaces, visitor’s reception and sleeping areas and interactive spaces. The project is modular and follows three templates, sized small, medium and large, which are located across the site in consideration of the existing landscape. Each module is organized around a chimney block which provides space heating, hot water and regulates the immediate atmosphere in conformity with bioclimatic principles. The project utilizes raw earth and material reuse, incorporating an on-site workspace for self-construction.
