Design develops a layering composed by traces and overlay of points of views, that generate different elements of the project: memorial, bamboo surface, pavilion and museum. The main aim is to relize a “Land Art” sculpture, seen with the natural perception of a kid. Architecture becomes an individual experience, that plays a commemorative meaning through the use of perspective like a metaphor of the disaster moment. Another key point is the expressive use of bamboo, enriched with symbolic and evocative meanings. Hill slope appears covered by a large installation that evokes the perception of a cane thicket. Bamboo rods, bent and folded like reeds in the wind, recreate a landscape that could be crossed. These reeds trace thin lights in the sky during the night, to remind the victims of the disaster.
