Strata

Strata: Sculptural landscape project near Riotinto lake, immersive rock museum, inclined tectonic formation unveils geological wonders.

Strata, an artistic marvel adjacent to Riotinto's dried-up lake, transcends conventional landscaping, manifesting as a sculptural masterpiece. Crafted with red cement, the project emulates a topographical map, revealing layers and perforations that guide visitors down into an underground artificial cavern.


This subterranean space mirrors a real cave, meticulously designed to bring patrons in close proximity to distinct strata of underground rock. Serving as a unique rock museum, Strata showcases diverse formations and crystals, leveraging the inclined tectonic formation of the site to unveil a mesmerizing visual journey.


The deliberate variation in height allows for an intimate exploration, transforming the project into an immersive experience that seamlessly blends art, landscape, and geology.
