OPEN PIT MINE

This invited competition was related with 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 it's 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 centre on the shore, which will finally remain once the flooding of the mine is completed.
