Guest of honour
Paolo Bürgi is a Swiss landscape architect.
His work relates mainly to the concept of “landscape”, which for him is closely connected to movement, cultural memory and private history. Thus the experience of space becomes something unique and unrepeatable.
A work in search of a contemporary renaissance, a “rebirth of the ability to see”, based on the wonder and rediscovery of a deep awareness, in a society where the relationship with the natural element is becoming more and more superficial and inattentive.
Interesting examples are the “Osservatorio Geologico” (Geological Observatory) or the “Terrazza nella foresta” (Terrace in the forest).
The element of anthropization enters on tiptoe in an architectural work that becomes a sign and a symbol, rather than a trace.
