Wettbewerbsaufgabe / Competition Task
This international one-stage architecture ideas competition invites all architecture students, young architects and young professionals with a degree in architecture studies (≤ 40 years old) to develop and submit compelling ideas for the design of a Site Theatre located on a site promontory near the Fortress of Baleal, in Baleal, Peniche, Portugal.
The Baleal Fortress is a significant landmark located within a remarkable place; a powerful natural scenery where the remains of the Fortress rises from the landscape and together with the cliff surfaces eroded by the wind are notable features within this setting.
When generating a vision for an intervention located within such a spectacular place, it is essential that each design proposal emphasises, respects and celebrates the site and existing ruins, while providing visitors with a unique experience.
The Site Theatre aims to create a new cultural destination and provide a place for open-air performances to enhance the experience within the landscape. The Site Theatre is a place to engage with the land, the sky and the sea, where performers and audience are both participants and observers while the landscape becomes a natural scenic venue.
