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