OPEN PIT MINE
This invited competition was related to the flooding of an old open-pit mine in the former DDR. On-site, we discovered a system of platforms left behind by the process of mining, each with its own stadium of spontaneously developing nature. We decided to document these hidden landscapes and proposed a temporal touristic route throughout the mine with stops on each platform, ending at a visitor center on the shore, which will finally remain once the flooding of the mine is completed.
