This project explores different ways in which the experience of contemplating a view can reshape the structure of a specific site. The program asks for an observation platform from which a scenic view of the city of Puebla can be perceived. In an attempt to get away from the idea of an architectural object placed on the landscape, the proposal seeks to apply a series of operations that could modify the structure of the existing landscape creating an experiential sequence of events rather than an isolated gesture. The experience of contemplating a view should not be a straight forward event. The project should create a sequence of dynamic experiences that could weave the immediate context with the distant territories into a whole coherent ensemble. Under these principles, the design, works with a series of subtle cuts and topographic operations that can generate both, contained spaces and framed views to specific long distant events. Thus, the design does not create a new object to be placed on the site but only reshapes the current configuration of the landscape so that it can respond to the both the program and the actual logics of the site.
