ArkxSite invita studenti di architettura e giovani professionisti under 40 a sviluppare progetti per il Site Sanctuary, situato in un meraviglioso scenario naturale a Monsanto, in Portogallo.
Si tratta di un luogo dedicato alla memoria e al ricordo, uno spazio intimo per celebrare la storia, la natura e l'esperienza sensoriale del luogo. Site Sanctuary offre un ambiente tranquillo per la riflessione, la meditazione e l'introspezione.
Il progetto, oltre a tener conto di questa natura tranquilla e riflessiva del luogo, dovrà considerare una serie di punti di riferimento significativi propri del paesaggio. Il sito costituisce un grande patrimonio culturale ed è carico di importanza storica, con caratteristiche che devono essere completamente conservate. L'intenzione degli organizzatori è quella di trovare idee capaci di rispettare e celebrare il sito, enfatizzandone l'unicità e la capacità di fornire ai visitatori un'esperienza speciale.
