PLANTA consists of an excavated volume that contains seven rooms: each room is strategically ‘carved’ per its programmatic specificity. PLANTA is not simply integrated into the landscape...it is landscape. A platform. The platform, amidst the sublime chaos of production and the screaming contours of the Pyrenees Mountains, provides silence and stability via a horizontal datum. It allows one to privately observe the intimate yet aggressively brutal process at the quarry as well as the beauty of the Catalonian landscape.
