Catch the Landscape_ Biennale Architectura 2016_ Venicia

Following the invitation to participate in la Biennale of  Venice 2016, our proposal aims in providing a significant value to  the existing outdoor space to the Arsenal biennale.

The fundament is to bring a space for the visitors of the biennale to be used and aware of the landscape.

The outer space is consolidated through the installation  of pieces of Chilean travertine marble, coming directly from Atacama desert, Northern Chile as recycled material of the quarry. These pieces are placed in different areas of the outdoor exhibition, such as along the water front, inside the archways, a place of passage, today practically deserted.

The project arises from simple interventions giving users moments for observation and contemplation of the landscape and architecture’s beauty around them.

The proposal titled ‘catch the landscape’ hopes to provide a new experience fronting the landscape , a different way of seeing and understanding the outer space.

‘Being under the trees ‘

Teresa Moller was selected by the IGA (International Garden show of Berlin) along with 9 other landscape designers from all over the world to design a garden in a park located on the outskirts of Berlin.

We decided to start the project through a series of lines using slabs of raw marble to set a structure to the place. Then between these lines we begin to plant and leave nature to settle and convey everything else we could not do ourselves. Nothofagus trees are then planted in a natural forest like layout. Over the years we can imagine the marble slabs slowly being overgrown by plants, nature taking over and slowly breaking out the man-made structure of the lines. The aim is to recreate a garden characteristics of Chile using simple materials such as the Travertine Marble extracted from the North and the native trees Nothofagus from the South, both emblematic of the beauty of Chilean landscapes.

The simplicity of the design enables visitors to be in harmony with nature when entering the enclosed garden. ‘Being under the trees’ allows people to move spontaneously, relax, contemplate and reflect

Cumelen. Villa La Angostura

This garden is located in the beautiful region of the 7 lagos (lakes) called Neuquen in Argentina. The garden overlooks onto the lake Nahuel Huapi. The design strategy consists en enhancing the planting scheme  all around the house embracing the site with the stunning nature around it. Existing trees that were dying were re-used for creating raw tables and benches dotted around the garden. The project was designed for the owners to make full use of their garden and enjoy the stunning views over the lake. A natural beach area was created allowing people to swim and enjoy the serenity of the lake.
