Environmental design and organic architecture
The project also extends to the entire entrance and parking area so to create a distinctive and highly coherent architectural environment. The sinuous lines, which merge into the nearby hills, and the T-shaped columns are the hallmarks of the American architect’s design. This particular column flows, at irregular intervals, along the pavilion façade and the fence, creating a strong rhythmic sense and becoming a frame for the view of interior architecture and outdoor landscape.
Another extraordinary architectural sign is the Peace House Pavilion by Massimiliano Fuksas. Designed by the well-known Italian architect in collaboration with Mr Rossini and his staff, this symbolic and conceptual pavilion was presented for the first time at the Venice Biennale in 2000. This micro architecture reproduces, on a smaller scale, the Peres Peace House building that Fuksas constructed in Tel Aviv.
Pursuing the desire to integrate art, environment and architecture in a single concept, the Rossini family commissioned to SITE studio and to New Yorker architect James Wines the design for the park entrance pavilion.
Wines, leading figure in the field of environmental design and organic architecture, gave life to a building that resonates with the surroundings and becomes one with the landscape. The pavilion roof is green, designed to be conquered by native vegetation. Materials are sourced locally and the floor-to-ceiling windows overlook the park and turn this architecture into a real telescope on the surrounding hills and mountains.
