Delta Dunarii

A pályamű leírása:

The project starts from the belief, prevalent in ecology, that the predominant factor affecting the welfare of any ecosystem is the human factor. The idea behind the project is that a research center located in such a remote location must be as tied to local communities inside of delta, as it is tied to the natural landscape being studied. The research program must be joined by a program of engagement with local communities. Thus, the main question the project seeks to answer becomes: how can an isolated community, such as the village of Crisan, integrate the function of a modern research center, and its adjacent scientific community. So, the solution proposes the opening up of the center’s functions. As Aldo Rossi states, "an amphitheater will be almost always empty". Thus, the library, auditorium, cafeteria, the housing units are used, built and managed in common with the local community. The study rooms of the center can also be used as a temporary school for the children of the delta region. The long street of the village being the only public space, the functions of the center are lined up along it. Instead of a single built body, foreign of the local scale, the different functions are scattered among the various buildings and gardens of the village, as simple, easy to build and maintain shed like constructions, rooted in the local context.
