Research base KPA: Volcano

Lucia Vargová


The research House is located on the inactive Czech volcano Železná hůrka. My inspiration comes from an organic compound anthracene composed of three hexagons, which are normally toxic to humans - just as architecture can be harmful to nature. The first part of our base will be an underground space, the aim of which is to free us from toxic thoughts after long-term thinking, when every idea already seems mundane and uninteresting. Upstairs, we find ourselves in three connected buildings, which form one whole-social part. The third, philosophical part is located above the working studio. The aim of this space is to give us enough incentives to stimulate our minds and prepare the "terrain" for the creation of new concepts that will accompany us with other projects.
