EVOLVER: Cool 720 Degree Continuous Turn Viewing Structure

Home? No. Cool? Yes. This spiral viewing structure built to savour the stunning panorama surrounding lake Stelli, Zermatt, is the joint effort of a group of students from ALICE studio, an architectural institute in Switzerland. Made completely in wood and supported by 24 twisted frames, the EVOLVER was designed to serve as both a destination and an activity for viewers touring Zermatt. As the viewer progresses through the space, a concealed but uninterrupted 720° movement is unraveling along a transformed panorama and with each step he gets a slightly different view of the landscape.
