BIVACCO BREDY │ Vertosan valley

Thoughtful, adventurous and restless; these were few of the words chosen by people close to Claudio when they were asked to describe him. Involvement in the commons and exploring new places, both the city and nature were dear to him, an interesting contrast. This contrast is attempted to be represented in this bivouac, as a memory of his life.

Landscape as an experience – Serenity, reflection and admiration, part of a combination of sensations as the impact of the landscape on man. We can recognize three predominant landscapes on the site, whose presence frames an area that we believe is one of the potentials for the location of the bivouac.

Part of the requirements were between 9 and 12 beds, so we studied different examples seen in the readings, to recognize what is the optimal amount of square meters, and from this, improve the experience of inhabiting it.

The proposal seeks to maximize the user experience, by reinterpreting classic strategies, in a contemporary way, taking into account the geography, its construction, and Claudio’s memory, which is intended to be represented through the use and experience of bivouac.
