The contest notice requires a project for an itinerary connecting Grushin’s railway station to the festival stage.
The solution is strong mark in the landscape that structures and characterizes the path by taking its movement from the site’s lay of the land.
Two linear paths originate from the platform in front of the station and reach the end of the valley. These paths represent and define all the elements of the project, creating spaces and pauses along the descent.
