Tara Pavilion by Camposaz

A wooden structure with a beautiful view in the Tarcu Mountains, Romania.

Tara explores the sensory perception of the environment and communicates with the symbolic and natural language of the elements. It is  like a filter which frames light and reality and gives them form and space,  in the pursuit of finding  a balance between empty and full spaces, vibrant and harmonious compositions which reveal imperceptible fluxes between lightness and gravity, a balance which expresses itself through the wood, a natural, living material ready to accept a slow but inevitable biological erosion

The structure is set on the border between a forest and an incredibly fascinating open space in the Southern Carpathian of the Tarcu Mountains, in Romania. The structure designed and built in ten days, with a team of 32 people coming from different foreign countries, represents both an experiment in the field of wood and the realization of a small infrastructure for a sensitive and caring form of tourism in terms of nature and environment. The initiative is supported by WWF Rumania and Camposaz, the latter being an Italian organization which promotes the collaboration among young architects and designers coming from all over the world to design and build structures which exploit the anthropized environment or, like in this case, a wild landscape.
