The Living Museum Competition

MICRO-ARCHITECTURES IN THE LANDSCAPE

The so called “take-away-tourism” has always been a critical issue for Sardinian small villages and minor museums. Visitors arrive by car from the coast, they visit the collection and as soon as they finish, they leave for the next destination, losing probably the only opportunity to explore the village and the surrounding territory. The chance to offer a sort of eco-hotel facility within the Nivola Museum complex might help to counter this take-away dynamic, fostering a different and maybe “one of a kind” type of touristic experience.
 
Competitors are therefore asked to imagine and design creative proposals focused on a unique and unconventional type of accommodation facility, located in the heart of the museum’s park. A privileged stopover for those tourists intent on traveling through the Nuorese region, and possibly also for those international artists who periodically reach Orani to set up their own exhibitions.
 
In the search for innovative concepts and original projects, “The Living Museum” encourages participants to experiment with a wide range of typologies, sizes and materials. Needless to say, the aim is to avoid massive buildings that generally neglect the context. In fact, the intention is to design small-scale structures capable of enhancing the value of the magnificent natural site.
