The Way is a stark, monolithic concept that has been conceived by Luiz Eduardo Lupatini in response to the ‘Site Mirador’ competition launched by ARKxSITE.
Anchored on the edge of a cliff on the Algarve coast in Portugal, the mirador faces the immensity of the Atlantic ocean. The position on the site provides a privileged view of the surroundings, situated in the direction parallel to the ruins, seeks to establish a dialogue between intervention and context.
The program is solved in a single piece, which can be read as a mono-material structure designed by Luiz Eduardo Lupatini. The search for harmony between opposites, and the balance between architecture and nature, creates a place of memory and contemplation, lengthens a way to be taken, where the only sound is the noise of the sea.
