STAIRWAY TO HEAVEN
Winning proposal for the competition organised by AJAC (Young Architects Association of Catalonia) to participate in Lluèrnia 2016.
The proposal transforms the space by integrating the iconic elements of the existing surroundings and using the minimum amount of elements. The starting point is the slanted surface of Plaça Móra and the central location of the fountain at Carrer Hospici. These elements are reminiscent of a pathway that ends up with the monument of the angel at the end of the square. The proposal envisions a stairway to the sky representing something divine. It creates an ascension through a pathway made out of bubble wrap and illuminated on the sides that starts on ground level. This pathway folds up and creates a background to the fountain that ends at the highest point of the angel. The installation creates a heavenly atmosphere around. The transparency of the material and the lighting makes the installation become playful. The sound when jumping on the bubble wrap makes people interact and play to each other. These elements create the ‘Stairway to heaven’.

The Lluèrnia festival takes place every year in Olot (Girona, Spain).
Artists from different fields present their installations based on fire and light.
The installation is mainly built with three elements: L-shape aluminium profile, LED light strips -which are stuck on the interior side of the profile- and bubble wrap.
